## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I have a BS in Physics and Math, and am taking a 2 year hiatus to bike to Argentina. I'm currently 3000 miles in, 14000 left.

Anyway, I am going to apply to graduate school for admission 2013, and I'm interested in theoretical physics. Primarily, I am interested in the foundations of quantum mechanics - the dispute between Einstein and Bohr over what we came to call entanglement is really fascinating. I don't have access to much while I am on the bike trip, but I have been reading their old papers on the subject, as well as Bell's paper on the topic ("Concerning Bertlmann's Socks" or something like that). Anyway, it seems to me as though there is still interesting work to be done on the subject, but most physicists, even theorists, seem to take a very practical approach to it and disregard any questions about the fundamental basis of QM as philosophy.

Basically, I am interested in finding modern research into the basis of Quantum Mechanics, possibly a continuation of Bell's work. Is anyone doing this? Where can I find papers on the subject? I am trying to decide which graduate schools to apply to, and so I would like to find professors who share my interests.

Thanks
