Dr. Ronald S. Gamble. As far as I can tell from reading his CV, he published at most 2 papers during his PhD at NC State. There are plenty of theorists who manage to publish 1015 papers during grad school. Also, it seems that he only has 3 completed papers in total. ljl.
Meet the newest member of UMD's theoretical astrophysics faculty

In theoretical physics, there are these geniuses who are extremely productive who write 1015 good papers with nonoverlapping material. They tend to be lead authors on all of their papers, with only 23 coauthors. They are, of course, a minority, but they're responsible for most of the research output among grad students. It's the 80/20 rule at work. And there still aren't enough faculty positions to absorb them, so many end up going to finance.
how do you write 1015 papers during grad school?
do you recycle the same content over and over again?
or do you just add your name to several papers with 20 other coauthors

or do you just add your name to several papers with 20 other coauthorsIn many areas of pure mathematics, it's not uncommon for grad students to write ~10 papers, without recycling or having 20 coauthors. I had 17 papers by the end of my postdoc, and I'm not a superstar.

According to his CV, none of his 3 arXiv papers has been refereed. This guy is barely competitive for an LRM postdoc, I can't imagine how many way stronger candidates were denied the position for the sake of this URM. Just f this shyte.

At this point there is nothing left for me but to apply to positions in China.

(though to someone who gets his understanding of physics from "The Big Bang Theory," it might seem like it)
It really hasn't
Theoretical physics has been dead for the last 30 years anyway so who cares if they hire guys like this
Actually it has. String theory has turned out to be the biggest waste of time of some of the greatest minds of our generation, and the rest pumping out these useless special cases of ads/cft correspondance is even worse. If there had been not 1 theoretical physicist alive the last 2 decades our knowledge of the universe would be no different.
Meanwhile math goes at continual warp speed and doesnt have to deal with guys like OP or losers like you

String theory has made zero predictions, yes. But it's also inspired much research in math and Ed Witten, a string theorist, even got a Fields medal for it.
In condensed matter theory, researchers have made great progress over the past three decades in understanding topological phases of matter and are beginning to make good progress in understanding nonequilibrium statistical mechanics.

That's definitely not true in astrophysics. If there are (plenty, even) such people, could you name them?
That said, if DG really got a tenure track position, he has by far the weakest publication record of any fresh AP I can remember.
