"Mapping the Universe to measure dark energy"
Thursday, 19th October 2017 (19:45 - 22:00)
Tonight Carlton will describe why we think there is dark energy in the Universe
and how we can use maps of galaxies to understand more about
the dark energy. He will review the ways in which cosmic cartography
has evolved over the years.
Speaker: Prof. Carlton Baugh
My research interests include modelling the physics of galaxy formation and devising new ways to measure dark energy using the large-scale structure of the Universe. I am member of the Euclid Consortium, the European Space Agency's Dark Energy Mission, responsible for producing mock catalogues.
I am part of the ICC's team selected to exhibit Cosmology in Crisis: What is the Matter? at the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition, 1st-7th July 2013 and in Newcastle at theBritish Science Festival, 7th-12th September 2013.
