Stephen M. Barr

Stephen M. Barr is a professor at the Bartol Research Institute of the University of Delaware. His work has been published in several periodicals, including Physical Review and Physics Letters. His research has spanned many areas of theoretical particle physics, with significant contributions coming from--but not limited to--his work on theories of baryogenesis (the origin of matter at the time of the big bang). He earned his graduate degrees from Princeton University and his undergraduate degree from Columbia University.

In the May 2005 issue of First Things, Stephen M. Barr reviewed the work of another MARS HILL AUDIO guest, Sir John Polkinghorne. The review, "Theology for Physicists," is available online.
