Shauna Kravec YPP Co-Director

Shauna is a third year student working with John McGreevy on problems in Condensed Matter Theory. She is interested in physics which don't care about rulers or stopwatches. In her spare time she enjoys hosting tabletop games.

Daniel Klein YPP Co-Director

Daniel is a fourth year grad student working for Frank Wuerthwein and Avi Yagil. His group studies the properties of tiny subatomic particles, using data gathered by the CMS experiment, part of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. When not researching, Daniel enjoys outdoor sports, long books, board games, and volunteering.

Chris Knowlton YPP Director Emeritus

Chris is doing research on computational neuroscience with Henry Abarbanel. When not doing research or YPP, Chris can be found biking around San Diego or Terran up the Starcraft ladders.

David Stone YPP Assistant Director Emeritus

David is a fourth year working for Benjamin Grinstein in the field of High Energy Theory. Whoa! Maybe. He currently pursues research in studying methods of electroweak symmetry breaking outside of those suggested by the Standard Model. The quote "You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother," credit A. Einstein, rings true, and thus he strives to teach others the beauty of physics- YPP! He enjoys backpacking and sometimes eating and sleeping, too. He even managed to make his own website (which looks oddly like YPP's site).
