Nikhil Padmanabhan is an Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Yale University. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2006, working with Uros Seljak. He was a Hubble Fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory from 2006 to 2009 and has been at Yale ever since. His research covers both observational and theoretical aspects of large-scale structure determination with galaxy surveys, with a focus on using baryon acoustic oscillation measurements to measure the expansion history of the Universe.
The Dark Energy Survey has combined its analysis of four cosmological observables to constrain the properties of dark energy—paving the way for cosmological surveys that will run in the next decade. Read More »
