Mr Carl Turner


  • 2017-date: Junior Research Fellow, Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge
  • 2013-2017: PhD Student, DAMTP, University of Cambridge
  • 2009-2013: BA/MMath, University of Cambridge


I am a member of the High Energy Physics group in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. My research interests involve various areas of field theory and string theory - I am currently working on the relationship between supersymmetric theories and non-relativistic, 2+1 dimensional condensed matter physics.

I completed my PhD, "BPS Approaches to Anyons, Quantum Hall States and Quantum Gravity", under the supervision of Professor David Tong in 2017.

My thesis is available here.
