Dr. Roy is a gravitational and high energy theorist. His passion is teaching. During his graduate study he was almost entirely involved in teaching undergraduate astronomy laboratory classes. He also taught physics and physical science coursesĀ at Northwest Mississippi Community College before joining Young Harris College.

Dr. Roy's research interest can be broadly classified as search for new physics at high energies. Specifically, he studies the formation, destruction and characteristics of mini blackholes at supercolliders, like the one at CERN in Switzerland. Dr. Roy has published several articles in one of the top physics journals and also has a book chapter to his credit. Additionally, he has presented at numerous conferences and has twice received the American Physical Society travel grant for this purpose.

Dr. Roy currently teaches physics, astronomy and astrophysics courses at YHC. He is actively involved in research activities and scholarly publications.
