Prof. Rosenzweig received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physics from NYU-Polytechnic and his Ph.D. from Harvard.
He has carried out research at UC-Berkeley, Hebrew University, Weitzman Institute of Science, the Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC-Santa Barbara and other universities in the US and abroad.
His major research interests are in theoretical elementary particle physics, especially hadronic interactions, QCD-inspired models, and quark confinement. Recently, his interests have focused on the earliest fractions of a second in the life of the universe. His research and outreach activities have been supported by the US Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and NASA.
Rosenzweig has taught the full gamut of graduate and undergraduate courses in his 30-year career at Syracuse University. He also was Principle Investigator in the design and construction of an exhibit on cosmology for the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) in Syracuse.
