Professor Tamara Davis is an astrophysicist who studies the elusive "dark energy" that's accelerating the universe.
Join Twesh Upadhyaya, MSc student at the University of Waterloo’s Department of Physics & Astronomy and Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), in conversation with scientific outreach manager John Donohue.
Dr. Nicole Drakos is an NSERC postdoctoral fellow in the Computational Astrophysics Research Group at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She obtained her PhD from the University of Waterloo in 2019, where she studied dark matter halo evolution. Her main research interests are using theoretical and computational models of structure formation to study cosmology and galaxy evolution.
Dr. Doris Stoppacher is a postdoctoral fellow in the Computational Astrophysics Research Group at the University of California, Santa Cruz. She has a background in stellar and extra-galactic astrophysics but focused on galaxy formation modeling during her PhD.
Dr. Allison Man is an assistant professor at the University of British Columbia. She investigates the physics behind starbursts, colliding galaxies and supermassive black holes. Allison received her PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Copenhagen.
Dr. Andrina Nicola is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University, working with Jo Dunkley and David Spergel. She did her undergrad and PhD at ETH Zurich. Dr. Nicola's research focus lies between theoretical and observational cosmology.
Andrey Kravtsov is a Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago and a member of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics since 2001.
Pierre Guillard is an associate Professor at Sorbonne University, and researcher at the Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris (IAP), France. His background expertise is the physics of the interstellar medium and multi-wavelength observations of galaxy interactions and radio galaxies.
David Alonso studied Physics and received a PhD in Theoretical Physics at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Oxford, and as Tutor of Astrophysics at Christ Church, before moving to Cardiff University with an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellowship.
Arka Banerjee is a Schramm fellow in Theoretical Astrophysics at Fermilab. Previously, he got his Phd from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and then was a KIPAC postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. His research focuses on cosmological structure formation, and its connection to fundamental physics.
Talk Title and Abstract:
Zachary Slepian is originally from Fairfield, Connecticut. He received a BA summa cum laude from Princeton (2011), working with J. Richard Gott, III on his senior thesis, an MSt in philosophy of physics at Oxford (2012), and a PhD in Astrophysics (2016) from Harvard, advised by Daniel J. Eisenstein.

Everything in the universe, as far as we can see, is made of matter. The Big Bang should have created equal amounts of matter and anti-matter, yet there is no natural anti-matter anywhere. The reason for this asymmetry is one of the big puzzles in fundamental physics, and its origin is expected to lie in undiscovered physics beyond the Standard Model.
The Faculty of Science is celebrating the achievements of this year's student award recipients. Please help us celebrate! Join us virtually as we bring together our students, donors, faculty and staff to recognize the tremendous accomplishments of our Science Stars.
Grab your favourite afternoon drink, cozy up in your favourite chair and spend an hour with some truly inspirational women. Whether you'd like to just listen, or engage over text in the online chat forum, this virtual high tea social will be a lively commentary and round-table discussion about why women choose to challenge.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
