Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski: Physics Girl (Next Einstein)
At age 14, Sabrina Pasterski walked into the campus offices of M.I.T. to present her single-engine plane. Yes, at only 14, Pasterski had built and flown her own single-engine plane and was seeking approval from some of the most brilliant minds at M.I.T. to notarize the airworthiness of her aircraft.
Pasterski, now 22, has already graduated from M.I.T.; she is now a Ph.D. candidate at Harvard. Much like her predecessors Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein, Pasterski explores the complex nature of gravity, spacetime, and black holes. The out-of-this-world physics brain lists many skills on her bare-bones website, physicsgirl.com.
Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski is an American physicist from Chicago, Illinois. She is a first generation Cuban-American who completed her undergraduate studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and is currently a graduate student atHarvard University. She is studying String Theory and High Energy Physics. Pasterski was 12 when she co-piloted FAA1 atAirVenture.At 21, Pasterski introduced Harvard to ‘the Triangle’ and the Spin Memory Effect, completed ‘the Triangle’ for E&M at MIT and then, at 22, during a Harvard Faculty Conference, spoke about whether or not those concepts should be applied to Black Hole Hair. She has received job offers from Blue Origin, an aerospace company founded by Amazon.com’s Jeff Bezos, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
REPORTED BY OZY:
Many profound minds have taken note of Pasterski and her undeniable genius. Nima Arkani-Hamed, a Princeton professor who won the inaugural $3 million Fundamental Physics Prize, told OZY that he’s heard “terrific things” about Pasterski from her advisor, Harvard professor Andrew Strominger. Jeff Bezos, one of Pasterski’s role models, has lauded her achievements and granted her a standing offer to join Amazon whenever she is ready.
On her preference to avoid booze, cigarettes, and boys, Pasterski says, “I’d rather stay alert and hopefully known for what I do, and not what I don’t do.” She plans to continue her work in physics as long as possible. “Physics itself is exciting enough. It’s not like a 9-to-5 thing. When you’re tired, you sleep, and when you’re not, you do physics.” All we can say is we want to be friends with this girl
