SMCAS Meeting

What we can learn about the origin and evolution of our universe from gravitational lensing
Fri Dec 06, 2013
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join the San Mateo County Astronomical Society (SMCAS) for our monthly meeting and presentation.

Speaker
Dr. Mandeep Gill
Observational Cosmologist
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

About the Speaker
Dr. Mandeep Gill is a visiting postdoctoral researcher at SLAC concentrating on gravitational weak lensing.  In 2008 he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics at the Ohio State University concentrating on gravitational weak lensing and determination of cosmological parameters from this technique.

He earned his doctorate at UC Berkeley in 2004 in Experimental High Energy Particle Physics. In the summer of 2005 he visited the LHC at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, and observed (one might even say was "awed by") the construction of the CMS and Atlas experiments.   In a visiting position at Caltech in 2006 he was involved in a cosmology project involving second order weak lensing (and ultimately better dark matter distribution determination) of distant galaxy clusters.
