VIRTUAL INPA SEMINAR | Zack Li (Princeton Univ.)

February 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Speaker: Zack Li (Princeton University)

Title: “Enabling New Views of the Early Universe from the Atacama in the Next Five Years”

Abstract:

We’re producing some exciting Cosmic Microwave Background data with high-resolution, ground-based observations at 27 – 280 GHz, from experiments like ACT, SPT, and (soon) SO and CMB-S4. I’ll discuss present and future challenges for CMB data analysis, and show results from integrating Planck data analysis with the Simons Observatory power spectrum pipeline. I’ll also talk about prospects for these surveys to use the early Universe to detect the particle nature of dark matter, and briefly introduce a theory code intended for machine learning.
