Jo Dunkley,

   Professor of Astrophysics, Oxford


I am a professor of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford. My research is in cosmology, studying the origins and evolution of the Universe.

My work involves determining properties of the Universe such as its rate of expansion, its age, and the nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy. In particular I study the Cosmic Microwave Background, light that has been traveling since shortly after the Big Bang. My research combines theoretical work with statistical analysis, to extract new information about the universe from cosmological observations. I am part of the science teams for the Planck and WMAP space satellites, and for the Atacama Cosmology Telescope in Chile.

I teach undergraduate and graduate physics students, and am a tutorial fellow at Exeter College in Oxford.

I am funded by the European Research Council, and STFC.
