Theoretical physics is a branch of physics which employs mathematical models and abstractions of physical objects and systems to rationalize, explain and predict natural phenomena. This is in contrast to experimental physics, which uses experimental tools to probe these phenomena.
Professor David Paganin, from the Faculty of Science over at Monash University’s talks about his passion for physics in this interesting video. He has worked with us in the past and we are always excited to hear him speak. He really is a prodigy and an expert in the field.
