They investigate the Universe through space telescopes and theoretical models
The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics welcomes two new members of cosmology and extragalactic astronomy group. Ismael and Renate will create mocks of cosmological data, and explore alternative cosmological models.
Since Autumn 2019 Ismael and Renate have joined the cosmology and extragalactic astronomy research group at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA). By means of satellite observations, advanced numerical simulations and fundamental theory, the two new cosmologists aim at investigating the nature of dark energy and dark matter, and exploring alternative pathways for the evolution the Universe.
Ismael graduated in Astronomy and completed his PhD at the National University of Cordoba, Argentina.
– "Most of my current research is related to cosmology. However, given my background in Galaxy formation and evolution, I also work on projects linked to extragalactic astronomy".
Since September 2019 Renate Mauland-Hus has been joining the Cosmology and Extragalactic Astronomy research group at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA):
– "I have been studying here in Oslo the whole time, and this is my first job after finishing my master’s degree in astronomy".
