Joseph Hollowed

Research Aide

Joe is currently working with the group at the post-baccalaureate level, studying the use of galaxy clusters as a probe of cosmology. He has ongoing projects involving the dynamics of galaxies within cluster environments, applying consequent insights to the construction and validation of synthetic galaxy catalogs, and also studying the details of weak-lensing observables as a proxy for cluster mass - an important cosmological quantity. He has active pursuits in SPT and LSST-DESC, and also has broad interest in investigating the nature of the universe on medium to large scales - from the details of cluster dynamics to large scale structure formation and expansion. Joe intends to carry his knowledge gained at CPAC to begin his graduate studies in physics/astronomy in the fall of 2018.
