Astro Seminar Series - Hybrid Seminar

Wednesday, October 5, 2022 11:30 am - 11:30 am EDT

Felipe Andrade-Oliveira is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Michigan. His research is focused on the investigation of the Large Scale Structure and the Dark Energy nature through Cosmological Surveys. He works as a Pipeline Scientist for Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) where he is also the co-leader of the covariance topic team. For the Dark Energy Survey (DES), he has been contributing to the covariances, harmonic space analysis, and BAO analysis for photometric surveys. In Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), his main contributions are focused on the instrument through the focal plane/positioners working group.

Talk Title and Abstract

Cosmology with photometric surveys

Cosmological photometric surveys have been playing a central role in cosmology through the measurement of the properties of hundreds of millions of galaxies and other objects. In this talk, we will present some of the current results and some of the challenges of multiprobe cosmological analysis. Focusing on the recent achievements from the Dark Energy Surveys (DES) and the perspectives for the next generation of experiments as in the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST), we will discuss how different techniques can be combined in order to produce some of the most accurate measurements of the Universe’s properties.
