last modified Oct 05, 2017 10:12 AM

Ricardo Chavez, CONACyT Fellow at the KICC, has been awarded the Best Doctoral Thesis Prize for the period 2013-2014 at the Mexican National Astronomy Meeting 2017. The prize is awarded to the best doctoral thesis written in Mexico (or by Mexican citizens anywhere in the world) on the fields of Astronomy, Astrophysics, Cosmology, Space Sciences or Astronomical Instrumentation. 

The thesis entitled "Constraining the Parameter Space of the Dark Energy Equation of State Using Alternative Cosmic Tracers" focuses on the use HII galaxies to trace the redshift-distance relation in an attempt to constrain the dark energy equation of state parameter solution space.

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.
