  14. 14. 7.ID XDr.X, Ph.D., is an experimental physicist at the California Institute of TechnologyDr. X specializes in high energy physics, particularlysearching for supersymmetry with like-sign dileptons.X believes loop quantum gravity is the future ofphysics and better unites quantum mechanics withgeneral relativity than does string theory. She positsthat only loop quantum gravity calculates the entropyof black holes and expects quantized spacetime tomanifest itself as minute differences in the speed oflight for different colors.
