Principle Investigator: Laura Newburgh
Laura is interested in studying the past 13 billion years of cosmic history through measurements of the CMB and 21cm emission from faraway galaxies. She has held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Dunlap Institute, a postdoctoral position at Princeton University, and she got her phD from Columbia University. Her work involves building instruments that go on telescopes in Chile and Canada. She enjoys running (not that she’s had a chance to do that recently), hanging out with scientists (because she only knows scientists), and using natural selection to build stronger plants through abject neglect while she’s travelling.
