Dylan Folsom


I'm a second year Ph.D. student in the Physics department. I was born and raised in Nashville, and I did my undergrad there at Vanderbilt. I graduated amidst the chaos of 2020 with majors in Physics, Math, and Classical Studies. Here at Princeton, I'm working to understand dark matter phenomenologically through its effects on astrophysical observables. Beyond my academic pursuits, I have many artistic interests, particularly music, film, and poetry, and I also love hiking! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone this year, and I'm excited for all the opportunities this year holds!
