Research Interests

Prof. Seljak research interests are in theoretical, computational and data analysis in astrophysics and cosmology, and more specifically in cosmic microwave background anisotropies and large scale structure of the universe. He is developing analytic and numerical models as applied to cosmological observations and data analysis techniques to analyze them. His recent research also covers fundamentals of big data statistical analysis, such as optimality and robustness. 


Uros Seljak joined Berkeley as a faculty in 2008, jointly appointed with LBNL. He received his B.S. in 1989 and M.S. in 1991 from Ljubljana University, Slovenia and his PhD in 1995 from MIT.
