Dr. Andrew W. Beckwith

Andrew W. Beckwith, Ph.D. was born on December 15, 1954. He has studied astrophysics, theoretical physics and superconductivity. He earned his Ph.D. from the Texas Center of Superconductivity on June 5th, 2002 with the dissertation Classical and quantum models of density wave transport: A comparative study.
Andy is currently working in condensed matter CDW/ Domain wall physics problems, and early universe models of emergent gravity/ entropy generation. He is a member of the American Institute of Beam Energy and was appointed senior scientific researcher for GravWave® LLC in February, 2009.
He is a Fellow of the Space Physics Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) and on their Committee for Space Astrophysics as well as a Life Member of the American Institute of Beamed Energy Propulsion (AIBEP). He has attended several astrophysics conferences in the last few years (2008) including the following: Space Technology Application International Forum (STAIF) 2007 and 2008 (HFGW sessions), Quantum Atomic and Molecular Tunneling in Solids (QAMTS) 2007 (Texas), 23rd International Conference On Neutrino Physics And Astrophysics (Neutrino 2008) (New Zealand), and European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) 2008 on behalf of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Poland).
Andy participated in the third HFGW International Workshop at Huntsville, Alabama in 2009 and the High-Frequency Gravitational Wave Symposium at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in 2010. He recently gave speaking presentations at Beyond the Standard Model 2010, Capetown, SA., DSU 2010, in Leon Mexico, RUDN 10, in Moscow, 2010, and gave a ten page contribution for the proceedings of the conference DICE, Italy 2010. In November 2010 he is scheduled to go to China for three and a half weeks in PRC China, for current research work in common with GW researchers.
Andy authored Hypothetical Dark Matter/Axion rockets: What can be said about Dark Matter in terms of space physics propulsion, Gravitinos, the Lithium problem, and DM production: Is there a corresponding neutrino physics linkage?, Relic High Frequency Gravitational waves from the Big Bang, and How to Detect Them, An open question: Are topological arguments helpful in setting initial conditions for transport problems and quantization criteria/ quantum computing for Density Wave physics?, and Symmetries In Evolving Space-time and Their Connection To High-frequency Gravity Wave Production.
