Cosmological parameters from SDSS and WMAP,  The construction and operation of the brand new Vera C. Rubin observatory, and Quasars

Prof. Michael Strauss is the chair of the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University. He uses large-scale imaging and spectroscopic surveys of the sky to “map the universe”, with a particular focus on studying the large-scale distribution of galaxies to address questions in cosmology and galaxy properties and evolution. He is also particularly interested in quasars, powered by supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies.
