Steven S. Gubser (born 1972) is a professor of physics at Princeton University.[1] His research focuses on theoretical particle physics, especially string theory, and the AdS/CFT correspondence. He is a widely cited scholar in these and other related areas.[2]

After receiving a Ph.D. in 1998 from Princeton, Gubser did postdoctoral research at Harvard University before taking a position as an assistant professor at Princeton. In 2001, he moved to the California Institute of Technology but returned again to Princeton in 2002.[3]
