Forskning

Mitt forskningsområde är kosmologi,  med specialisering kring användandet av Typ Ia supernovor för att mäta de största avstånden i universum. Jag är en av de tidigaste medlemmar av "Supernova Cosmology Project" (SCP),  som upptäckte att universums expansion accelererar,  något som brukar förknippas med begreppet ”dark energy”.  Jag delade  "2007 Gruber Prize in Cosmology" och "Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics in 2015" med mina SCP-kollegor. Ledaren för vårt team, Saul Perlmutter, fick ena halvan av 2011-års Nobelpris i fysik. Jag har också fått Gustafssonpriset 2004.

Sedan 2013 leder jag de kosmologika studier med Typ Ia supernovor  med projektet intermediate Palomar Transient Factory. Under 2018 startar vi dess efterföljare, Zwicky Transient Faciltiy!

Mer information om min forskning går att hitta här och mina publikationer. Sedan 2017  leder jag ett nytt projekt, GREAT, en av vetenskapsrådet finansierat forskningmiljö kring studien källor av gravitationsvågor och deras elektromagnetiska signaler.

Jag har tidigare ävern forskat inom experimentell partikelfysik, främst letandet efter Higgsbosonen på CERN och senare inom högenergi neutrinoastrofysik med AMANDA och IceCube telescopen vid Sydpolen i Antarktis.
