Professor of Physics
Larry Gladney joins Yale as Professor of Physics and FAS Dean for Diversity and Faculty Development in January 2019. Gladney’s research focuses on the intersection of experimental particle physics and cosmology, where he attempts to understand the origins of and fundamental connections between matter, energy, space, and time. He is particularly interested in future explorations of the cause for the accelerated expansion of the universe. Co-author or author of more than 600 peer-reviewed publications, he comes to Yale from the University of Pennsylvania where he was the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Professor for Faculty Excellence in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and the Associate Dean for Natural Sciences in the School of Arts and Sciences. At the University of Pennsylvania he also held a secondary appointment as Professor of Education in the Higher Education division of the Penn Graduate School of Education.
