Siddharth Mishra-Sharma

Hi! I’m currently an IAIFI Fellow at the NSF AI Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions (IAIFI), affiliated with the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT and the Department of Physics at Harvard University.

Research Interests: I work at the intersection of particle physics, astrophysics, cosmology, and statistics. I’m interested in developing and applying novel statistical techniques—often using machine learning and probabilistic modeling—in order to accelerate searches for new physics.

CV: A copy of my CV may be found here.

Publications and Code: My publications can be found on INSPIRE, ADS, or Google Scholar. I’m passionate about open and reproducible research, and code associated with most of my projects may be found on GitHub.

Contact: I can be reached via email.

Previously: Prior to MIT/IAIFI I was a postdoc at New York University’s Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics from 2018-2021. I obtained my Ph.D. in Physics from Princeton University in 2018, working under the supervision of Mariangela Lisanti with my dissertation focusing on astrophysical searches for dark matter. Along the way, I’ve been fortunate to have worked on experimental particle physics early on in graduate school and as a Summer Student at CERN. I completed my undergraduate studies at Peterhouse, University of Cambridge in the UK where I read the Natural Sciences (Parts I and II) and Mathematics (Part III) Triposes. I grew up in Moscow, Russia.

Misc.: I enjoy road cycling and hanging out with my cat, Toph.
