Past Astro Seminars

Astronomy Seminar: "Supernova Cosmology: From DES to Roman"

Benjamin Rose (Duke University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4C6

The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is in the process of finalizing its ultimate scientific analyses. Later this year, we expect the DES Supernova survey to release a constraint on the dark energy equation of…

Astronomy Seminar: "21-cm Cosmology at a Crossroads"

Rennan Barkana (Tel Aviv/IAS)
- 4C6

Radio waves from high redshift are expected to show a rich signal due to the 21-cm line of intergalactic hydrogen. After years of theoretical…

Astronomy Seminar: Simulating Early Structure and Galaxy Formation - The THESAN Project

Mark Vogelsberger (MIT)
- Zoom

Cosmological simulations of galaxy formation have evolved significantly over the last decade. In my talk I will describe recent efforts to model the 

Astronomy Seminar: Towards precision measurements of dark matter

Sukanya Chakrabarti (Rochester Institute of Technology/IAS)
- 4C6

For more than a century now, our inference of the mass distributions (including dark matter) in galaxies have been based on modeling the positions and velocities of stars, i.e., using kinematic analyses,…

Astronomy Seminar: Andromeda as a Stepping Stone to the Local Volume: Chemodynamics of Extragalactic Streams and Shells

- 4C6

Massive galaxies like the Milky Way and Andromeda (M31) form in part from the accretion of less massive galaxies. The chemical and dynamical properties of disrupted galaxies, in the form of streams and…
