Anirudh Prabhu

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am a theoretical astro-particle physicist working on understanding plasma dynamics and electromagnetic emission in neutron star magnetospheres. My research also involves exploring extreme, magnetized plasma environments as potential laboratories for investigating physics beyond the Standard Model. I completed my PhD in physics at Stanford University in 2022 and am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) at Princeton University. My current research involves understanding the role of strong-field quantum electrodynamics (QED) effects in governing plasma supply and low-frequency electromagnetic emission in magnetars. Additionally, I have studied the production and observational signatures of axions, which are among the leading dark matter candidates, in pulsar magnetospheres. I am interested in collaborating with researchers in SCEECS to develop an observation-driven theoretical understanding of magnetars, including their possible connection to fast radio bursts. I also hope to use insights gained from this program to accelerate the search for physics beyond the Standard Model.
