Simone Ferraro, Ph.D.

Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab

Simone Ferraro is a faculty-level scientist at Lawrence Berkeley Lab and a senior member of the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP). Previously he was a Miller and BCCP Fellow in the department of Astronomy at Berkeley. He completed my Ph.D. in Astrophysics at Princeton and was an undergraduate at Cambridge and a master’s student at the University of Chicago. He is a cosmologist interested in many aspects of CMB and the evolution of the Large Scale Structure. His research spans from the very early Universe to the epoch of reionization and galaxy formation. He uses advanced statistical techniques, and a combination of theory and experimental data to help uncover the physics of the early Universe, the nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, and the properties of neutrinos.
