Ibrahim Shehzad

PhD Candidate in Theoretical Physics at Cornell University
Passing Year: 
2014

LUMS gave me the opportunity not only to explore the full range of my academic interests - from Physics and Mathematics to Philosophy and Persian literature - but also actively pursue my passion for sports like Hockey, Cricket and Tennis. My education at LUMS was supported by the LUMS merit scholarship of which I was a fortunate recipient in all four of my years at LUMS. In 2014, I graduated with the NMF gold medal for Physics. Thereafter, I worked for one year as Research Assistant (RA) at the Department of Physics, SBA-SSE, LUMS. After that, I completed a 10-month (accelerated) Master's program in Theoretical Physics from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, in Waterloo, Canada. In the Fall of 2016, I will start my PhD in Theoretical Physics at Cornell University. My primary areas of interest in Physics include Gravitational Physics and Elementary Particle Physics, in particular String Theory.
