Bill Hirsch received his BS from the Pennsylvania State University in Astrophysics and performed computational nuclear physics research when earning his MS at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He received his Ph.D. from Wake Forest University for theoretical research concerning general relativity’s interplay with quantum field theory. This research was an exploration of an approximation to a quantum theory of gravity in which quantum fields interact with a space-time of extreme curvature. He examined quantum effects created by the presence of a fermion field (electrons, neutrinos, etc.) in blackhole and worm hole space-times. The nature of these effects may predict the non-existence of astrophysical objects that produce extreme space-time curvature.
