Me Professor of Astronomy, University of California, Berkeley

I am a cosmologist and astrophysicist.

Among the topics I have studied are the properties of dark matter and dark energy, the cosmic microwave background, gravitational lensing, galaxy formation and evolution, supermassive black holes, and the large-scale structure of the universe. I occasionally manage to climb out of the dark and lumpy universe; during these sunny moments (or rather, moonless nights), I have enjoyed collaborations with observers in studying properties of galaxies using big telescopes.

Four personae have been diagnosed for my multiple personality syndrome.
