My research focuses on designing, building and then using telescopes to make observations of the relic radiation from the Big Bang, known as the cosmic microwave background. These observations provide insights into the formation and evolution of the universe and test not only the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe but also provide one of the most precise tests yet of the origin and structure of the universe.
