    Hi. My name is Paul Wallace and I am the author of psnt.net. Here’s a little about me.

    A science nerd since childhood, I received my PhD in experimental nuclear physics from Duke University in 1996, did the obligatory postdoc, and moved to gamma-ray astronomy. From 1998 until 2008 I was a professor of physics and astronomy at Berry College in Rome, Ga. At that point I returned with my family to my hometown of Atlanta where I started the Master of Divinity program at Candler School of Theology at Emory University. I graduated with a concentration in historical theology in May 2011. In November 2014 I was ordained at First Baptist Church of Decatur, Ga., a congregation of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

    I teach physics and astronomy at Agnes Scott College in Decatur. I also occasionally teach at Candler and Columbia Theological Seminary. I have a deep affection for Buddhism and have twice served on the faculty of the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative in Dharamshala, India. In an earlier life I spent three fun-filled summers in Greenbelt, Md. as a Faculty Fellow at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

    My first book, Stars Beneath Us: Finding God in the Evolving Cosmos, was released by Fortress Press on March 1, 2016. You can order it here.

    I am married to Elizabeth Sides Wallace and we have three children. We live in Atlanta and like it fine.

    I speak regularly at churches, church meetings, colleges, and events of all kinds. If you’d like me to speak for your organization, please refer to my speaking page.

    I hope you enjoy my tiny corner of the Internet. Please contact me by leaving a comment below if you have any questions, comments, radical remarks, shouts of joy, or other observations.
