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.
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. He is interested in galaxy formation processes and more specifically in the role of the turbulence in the context of galaxy evolution.
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.
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.
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.
