Dr Jack Elvin-Poole is a postdoctoral fellow at the Ohio State's Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (CCAPP). He obtained his PhD from the University of Manchester in 2018 where he studied the large-scale structure of the universe and neutrino cosmology. His main research interests are using galaxy clustering and weak gravitational lensing to test the Lambda-CDM cosmological model.
Megan Donahue is a professor of physics and astronomy at Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing, Michigan. She is interested in astrophysical questions relating to intergalactic baryons, particularly those surrounding galaxies. Those questions range from cosmology and dark matter to galaxy evolution. Her PhD in astrophysics is from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Jingjing Shi is a IPMU fellow at Kavli IPMU in Japan. She investigates the interplay between large scale structure, dark matter halos, and galaxies. She got her PhD in 2017 from SISSA in Italy. Prior to joining IPMU, she was a Boya fellow at KIAA in Peking University.
Talk Title and Abstract:
Dr. Smitha Vishveshwara
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Dr. Vishveshwara's research spans a broad range of topics in quantum condensed matter theory. Her group maintains active collaborations worldwide and strong ties with condensed matter and cold atomic experimentalists. Her work also interfaces with other sub-disciplines, such as with biological physics and gravitation.
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.
