Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge




The "Kavli Fellows' Science Day" took place on the morning of Thursday 30 September. The event consisted of talks from many of the Kavli Fellows.

This enjoyable and informative event, brought everyone up to speed on many of the exciting developments led by the Kavli Fellows over the past 18 months. It also provided an opportunity to celebrate Roberto Maiolino’s very successful term as Director of the Kavli Institute.

The talks were given in-person in the Sackler Lecture Theatre at the IoA and live-streamed to the Ryle Meeting Room in the Kavli Building or for viewing from office or home.

To minimise any COVID-related risks, lunch (catered by Aromi) was enjoyed in the cosy marquees in the IoA quad.


The schedule of talks was:


Annelies Mortier "Characterising planets around iron-poor stars" [pdf]

Alexandra Amon "Connecting galaxy formation and cosmology with weak lensing" [pdf]
