Physics Explained is a channel aimed at exploring advanced topics in physics without skimping on the mathematical detail. There is a growing community of independent learners who are keen to explore modern ideas in physics with the aid of mathematical reasoning. This channel aims to tackle advanced topics head on, using only high school mathematics, at the same time as providing a historical narrative to help provide context to the ideas.

A bit about my educational background: I have a PhD in theoretical physics, specialising in string theory. I now dedicate most of my my time to physics education and educational research.
