Professor Balogh's research uses the world’s largest telescopes to study the physical properties of distant galaxies.  Through spectroscopy we can learn about the distances, ages, chemical composition and star formation histories of these galaxies.

Avery Broderick

Associate Professor

Dr. Broderick works to explain the fundamental physics of black holes and their observable characteristics. Black holes are sites where strong gravity dominates everything, from the dynamics of orbiting material to the shape of spacetime itself. 

Richard is a lecturer in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.  His research background is in general relativity but his main responsibility is undergraduate teaching and undergraduate student advising.

 
 

Mike Fich

Professor

Dr. Fich is an astronomer specializing in studies of star formation, the interstellar medium, and the structure of galaxies. His recent research activities have focused on “small scale” formation studies of low and intermediate mass stars, circumstellar disks, and the formation of proto-solar systems.

Ghazal Geshnizjani

Associate Professor

My research has so far included tackling different aspects of theoretical cosmology such as investigating inflationary and bouncing scenarios, models of dark energy, modifications of general relativity, backreaction of metric perturbations, cosmic strings in extra dimensions and initial conditions for quantum fluctuations.

Broadly speaking, Professor Hudson's research is in observational and theoretical cosmology, particularly Galaxy Formation, and measuring the properties of dark matter and dark energy through Gravitational Lensing, Cosmic Flows and Large-scale Structure.

 
 

Professor Mann works on gravitation, quantum physics, and the overlap between these two subjects. He is interested in questions that provide us with information about the foundations of physics, particularly those that could be tested by experiment.  

Eduardo Martin-Martinez

Associate Professor

RQI stands for Relativistic Quantum Information – the broad title given to my field of research. I study traditional aspects of quantum information science in the more fundamental setting of relativistic field theory on flat and curved spacetimes.

Giant black holes weighing upwards of one billion times the mass of the Sun are thought to lurk at the centers of all massive galaxies. Energy released by spin breaking and infalling matter onto such supermassive black holes may be regulating the growth of galaxies and clusters of galaxies. 

James Taylor

Associate Professor

Dr. Taylor is using whatever tools he can, including numerical simulations, astrophysical theory and observational data, to try to figure what dark matter is, where it is, and how it behaves.

Enrique Paillas is a postdoctoral fellow working with Prof. Will Percival. He obtained his PhD degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. His research focuses on observational cosmology and the large-scale structure of the Universe.
