John McGreevy is an Assistant Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and an Alfred Sloan Fellow. Previously, he was a Dicke Fellow at Princeton and a research scientist at Stanford. He did his thesis work at Stanford and at the University of California, Berkeley, and his undergraduate work at Brown University. Recently, he has been working on physical applications of holographic duality.
Although theoretical approaches to modeling “strange metals,” such as the cuprate superconductors, originate from apparently different sources, research now suggests they flow toward a single universal model.
