My research interests include Astrophysics and Cosmology. I study the large scale structure of the universe, developing and implementing dynamical and statistical tools. In particular I analyze proper distance surveys to find the distribution of mass in the Universe. I am looking at the kinetic Sunayev-Zeldovich signature of clusters to study dark energy and the evolution of the Hubble parameter. I also study the distribution, properties and substructure of void-supercluster network.
Meetings of the ASKC take place on the fourth Saturday of the month except December. The next three meetings will be March 22, April 26 and May 24.
We've added an informal meet-and-greet from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Board members and club members will be available to answer questions, chat about news of the day and in general get to know faces in the light, rather than voices in the dark. Treats will (probably) be available for the meet-and-greet before meetings and after meetings. Also after general meetings and weather permitting, you are invited to the roof of Royall Hall to look through some of the instruments inhabiting the Warkoczewski Observatory.
