I am a Professor of Physics and Astronomy, and Director of the Center for Cosmology at the University of California, Irvine. I am interested in the origin, structure and composition of the universe and the fundamental physics governing it.
Specific research activities:
- Dark matter particle production in the early universe and its detection today
- Precision cosmology and dark energy
- Neutrino physics in the early universe and supernovae
- Blazars’ and other Active Galaxies’ Population Evolution
- Galaxy formation theory and statistics
- Primordial nucleosynthesis
- Gamma ray bursts
My research papers are typically written at the level appropriate for starting graduate students in physics. All my particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology papers are available through INSPIRE.
