Katrin Heitmann is the Deputy Division Director of the HEP Division. She is a Physicist and Computational Scientist within the HEP Division and a Senior Member of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago and a member of NAISE at Northwestern. Her research currently focuses on computational cosmology, in particular on trying to understand the causes for the accelerated expansion of the Universe. She is responsible for large simulation campaigns with HACC and for the tools in the associated analysis library, CosmoTools. Katrin is a member of several major astrophysical surveys that aim to shed light on this question and is currently the Computing Coordinator for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope Dark Energy Science Collaboration.
Salman Habib is the Director of Argonne’s Computational Science (CPS) Division and an Argonne Distinguished Fellow. Habib’s interests and contributions cover a broad span of research, ranging from quantum field theory and quantum information to the formation and evolution of cosmological structures. He also leads projects in the areas of algorithms and computational methods, high-performance computing, and advanced statistical methods and machine learning.
Dr. Carlos Wagner is the head of the Theory Group of the High Energy Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He works as a Professor at the Enrico Fermi Institute and the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago. His area of research is phenomenology of particle physics, namely the study of the interactions of elementary particles, with a special emphasis on collider physics, Higgs physics, the theory of Dark Matter and the origin of the asymmetry between matter and anti-matter.
