PD. Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
PhD. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
M.Sc. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
B.Sc. Georgia Institute of Technology, USA.
Prof. Good received the B.Sc. in Physics with Highest Honors from the Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, under the advisement of Prof. David R. Finkelstein, (PhD, MIT; whose coordinates removed the singularity in the Schwarzschild metric convincing the physics community of the physical existence of black holes). Prof. Good then attended the University of Hawaii as a Manoa Scholar in the Physics and Astronomy Department and the Institute of Astronomy.
Prof. Good obtained the M.Sc. and PhD. in Physics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (where Peter Higgs wrote his paper on the Higgs boson-2013 Nobel Prize). He was advised by both Prof. Charles R. Evans (Caltech post-doc under Kip Thorne, 2017 Nobel Prize); and Prof. Paul R. Anderson (PhD, UCSB under James Hartle of the Hartle-Hawking wavefunction of the universe). As a PhD. student, Prof. Good was a visiting researcher at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University in 2009.
From 2011 to 2014 he was a Postdoctoral Scientist and Senior Research Fellow in Singapore at the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Nanyang Technological University in the quantum cosmology research group. Here he helped discover black hole quantum vortices, and did pioneering work in relativistic superfluidity with MIT Prof. Kerson Huang (who authored the widely used graduate textbook, Statistical Mechanics).
In August 2014 he joined Nazarbayev University as Assistant Professor. He has authored papers in high impact, peer-reviewed, international journals such as the Journal of High Energy Physics, New Journal of Physics and Physical Review D. He has won awards from the American Association of Physics Teachers, the National Science Foundation, the American Physical Society and the Julian Schwinger Foundation. He was awarded the Outstanding Teaching Award from the University of North Carolina, and the University-level Teaching Award from Nazarbayev University.
His recent work with MIT physicist Prof. Frank Wilczek (2004 Nobel Prize) and Eminent Scientist Eric Linder (UC-Berkeley) has solved the information loss problem in the moving mirror models for black hole radiation; a nearly 50 year old puzzle on black holes put forth by Stephen Hawking.
Prof. Good recently serves as the Chair of the Faculty Senate.
