Cosmological surveys aim at answering fundamental questions about our Universe, including the nature of dark matter or the reason of…ArXiv:1902.05965
The Cosmology X Data Science group develops novel algorithms and ways of thinking to apply to datasets to answer fundamental questions about the cosmos.
Astronomy is entering a new era. With ground- and space-based telescopes equipped with increasingly more sensitive cameras and instruments, enabling surveys, such as Kepler, Gaia and DES, SDSS, DESI, LSST, Euclid and WFIRST, that are discovering thousands of planets and millions of stars and galaxies, we are able to seek answers to fundamental questions about the origin and evolution of the universe. Cosmology X Data Science is a group that looks into all these datasets, develop new methods and ideas to answer fundamental questions of our cosmos.
Matter evolved under influence of gravity from minuscule density fluctuations. Non-perturbative structure formed hierarchically over all scales, and developed non-Gaussian…ArXiv:1811.06533
The Simons Observatory (SO) is a new cosmic microwave background experiment being built on Cerro Toco in Chile, due to…ArXiv:1808.07445
Gabriella Contardo joined the foundation in July 2018 as a Flatiron Research Fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics. She completed her PhD in machine learning at LIP6, Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, where she worked on cost-sensitive prediction and meta-active learning problems…
Francisco Villaescusa-Navarro’s research interests range from cosmology to galaxy formation and its work is focused on understanding the impact of massive neutrinos on the cosmological observables and on the usage of the intensity mapping technique as a cosmological tool to study the large-scale structure of…
