About Marco Tavora Ph.D.

I am a theoretical physicist, consultant, and writer. The piano is my other great passion besides physics & mathematics. | My Medium articles are slightly unusual since, paraphrasing the great Roger Penrose, I do not "shy away" from using advanced math when I find it essential. I have a few reasons for that. First, my view is that there is some condescension to the non-specialist public concerning science. I'm afraid I have to disagree with that attitude strongly. My target readers are those who desire to understand the universe and won't mind engaging with the material. Second, I cannot genuinely describe several fascinating concepts without employing some formulae. Last but not least, my goal here is not to push my agenda (as sadly became the norm now). I base my content on the work of other prominent scholars (ultra-carefully, almost obsessively, acknowledged in the articles!) | Anyway, I sincerely hope my writings serve as a source of enjoyment and inspiration for everyone! | Let me finish this with a quote that summarizes my view of science: "The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious." (Einstein's Credo, 1932)
