Yi-Kuan Chiang is a CCAPP fellow at the Ohio State University working on data-intensive astronomy. He extracts cosmological and astrophysical information in the diffuse extragalactic background light in sky surveys across the electromagnetic spectrum. He received his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin and has held post-doctoral positions at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Tokyo.
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:
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.
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.
His research interests span from studies of formation of the smallest dwarf galaxies to the most massive galaxy clusters and he uses numerical simulations and analytical models to study formation of these systems.
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.
