Dr Blake Sherwin awarded European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant

KICC member and DAMTP Lecturer Dr Blake Sherwin has been awarded a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC), one of the most competitive types of grants for early career researchers in Europe.

The ERC-funded project 'CMBLENS' will develop a variety of novel methods to analyse the gravitational lensing of the cosmic microwave background, the relic light from the early universe. Applying these methods to the state-of-the-art Advanced ACTPol and Simons Observatory experiments, Dr Sherwin and his collaborators will pursue new insights into the masses of neutrinos, the time-evolution of dark energy and the physics of the very early universe.

Galaxies at the ‘cosmic noon’ are often characterised by the absence of strong radial gradients in the spatial distribution of metals, consistent with strong feedback mechanisms in place, but is this always reflecting a real spatial homogeneity ? New insights from the KLEVER Survey.
