Observational Cosmology

at the University of Melbourne


Our group focuses on making precision measurements of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) using world-leading international CMB experiments in Chile and the South Pole. The CMB is our first image of the infant Universe -- when the Universe was a mere 0.003% of its current age -- and provides stringent tests of our understanding of how the Universe began and how it has evolved. We work on all stages of the analysis of these Petabyte-sized data sets, from experimental characterization to cosmological interpretation.

I am happy to discuss potential research projects with prospective Masters or PhD students. There are also opportunities for enthusiastic undergraduates looking to do a research project in cosmology, typically in either your second or third year of study.
