Jens Jasche, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Observational Cosmology, Physics Department, Stockholm University

Jens Jasche is an Associate Professor of Observational Cosmology at the Physics Department and the Oskar Klein Center at Stockholm University. He received his Ph.D. degree in physics from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Before his faculty appointment at Stockholm University, he held a research fellowship at the Cluster of Excellence “Origin and Structure of the Universe” part of the Excellence Initiative of the Federation of German Federal States. He has also received a two-year Feodor Lynen fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation to conduct postdoctoral research at the Institut d’astrophysique de Paris. His research focuses on computational astrostatistics and machine learning to analyze galaxy redshift surveys aiming at studying the origin and evolution of cosmic structure, galaxies’ formation, dark matter, and dark energy phenomenology. Jasche has pioneered the Bayesian forward modeling approach to reconstruct the cosmic initial density field from galaxy surveys. He is an elected fellow of the International Astrostatistics Association and has received funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the Swedish Research Council to research the dynamical evolution of the cosmic structure with next-generation galaxy surveys.
