My name is Adam J. Archibald.
I’m a 6th year graduate student at Washington University in Saint Louis. The bulk of my work has been focused on the development of a torsion balance experiment to investigate gravitation at distances below a centimeter. You can read more here.
Outside of the lab I enjoy board games, rock climbing, playing music, reading, and occasionally writing. Or I’m bumming around with my wife, because she’s awesome.

The title of this site comes from one of my favorite quotes, by Ralph Waldo Emerson :
Here is the world, sound as a nut, perfect, not the smallest piece of chaos left, never a stitch nor an end, not a mark of haste, or botching, or second thought; but the theory of the world is a thing of shreds and patches
The picture if from a trip to Chico, Ca (Bidwell Park) and was a complete accident.
