About Thomas Kelley

Dr. Thomas Kelley began his quixotic academic adventure at Iowa State University at the turn of the century. In the corn fields of Ames, Iowa, he earned a B.S. in Physics (and met his future spouse)in a quick 3-year period. After being accepted into Teach for America, Tom moved to Baltimore and taught physics at Lake Clifton High School for a short time before retreating back to biomedical research at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Heeding the call for a further academic degree, Tom moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the University of Minnesota accepted him into their Physics PhD program. At UMN, he specialized in high-energy theoretical physics and wrote his dissertation on the dynamics and thermodynamics of a certain class of gauge-gravity dual theories.

Armed with a Physics PhD, Tom moved to an area with one of the greatest concentration of advanced degrees, Boston, MA. After being an itinerant physicists and working at MathWorks, he found a home in the Physics Department at Northeastern. Currently, Dr. Kelley is hard at work, teaching a plethora of courses from Introductory Physics for Engineers to Quantum Mechanics.
