The ScienceDaily article Our Universe at Home Within a Larger Universe? So Suggests Physicist’s Wormhole Research said

Could our universe be located within the interior of a wormhole which itself is part of a black hole that lies within a much larger universe?
Such a scenario in which the universe is born from inside a wormhole (also called an Einstein-Rosen Bridge) is suggested in a paper from Indiana University theoretical physicist Nikodem Poplawski in Physics Letters B.
Poplawski takes advantage of the Euclidean-based coordinate system called isotropic coordinates to describe the gravitational field of a black hole and to model the radial geodesic motion of a massive particle into a black hole.

Nikodem J. Poplawski, Ph.D. is theoretical physicist at Indiana University.
Niko’s research interests include: classical unified field theories, gravitational interaction of spinors and gauge fields, metric-affine and purely affine formulations of general relativity and their relation to Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, origin of mass and fine-structure constant, variational principles in physics, gauge gravity, black holes, quantum gravity, dark matter, and dark energy.
He authored Massive vectors from projective invariance breaking, Torsion as electromagnetism and spin, Radial motion into an Einstein-Rosen bridge, Variational formulation of Eisenhart’s unified theory, Gravitation, electromagnetism, and the cosmological constant in purely affine gravity, The cosmic snap parameter in f(R) gravity, Propagating torsion in the Einstein frame, A Michelson interferometer in the field of a plane gravitational wave, and Acceleration of the universe in the Einstein frame of a metric-affine f(R) gravity.

Niko earned his MSc in Astronomy at the University of Warsaw, Poland in 1999 and his Ph.D. and MSc in Physics at the Department of Physics and Nuclear Theory Center, Indiana University in 2004.
