Zhongxu Zhai is a postdoctral fellow at the Waterloo Centre for Astrophysics. Prior to that, he was a postdoctoral researcher at Caltech/IPAC. He obtained his PhD from New York University in 2018. His work focuses on the large-scale structure of galaxies and dark matter halos, and observational tests of standard Lambda-CDM cosmological model.

Andrew Wetzel is an associate professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Davis. His research focuses on galaxy formation, through the use of cosmological zoom-in simulations, in particular, understanding the building blocks and formation history of our own Milky Way galaxy.

Tom Rose is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Waterloo focusing on radio observations of massive galaxies and galaxy clusters. His principal work looks at the shadows of molecular gas clouds cast against the bright active galactic nuclei at the centres of these galaxies. This can tell us about the properties of the gas and how it relates to supermassive black hole accretion.

Nicolas Cowan is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Planetary Climate at McGill University. His group uses telescopes and models to study the climates of exoplanets. Cowan was previously an Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Amherst College, and a CIERA Postdoctoral Fellow at Northwestern University.

Ananth Tenneti - I completed my PhD in Physics at Carnegie Mellon University in December 2016. I have studied intrinsic alignments of galaxies using cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. Intrinsic alignments are an important astrophysical systematic in the weak lensing analysis for upcoming surveys such as the LSST (Rubin) and Euclid.
