He focuses on research and outreach projects that blend fundamental physics, technological novelty, and social need. When not science-ing, Thanasi can be found cooking or playing clarinet with Greek, Turkish, and Arabic music groups around the Northeast.
Josh is a social psychologist with current research investigating emotion, intuition, religion, close relationships, culture, evolution, and outgroup stereotyping.
