Kirit Karkare, 2020-2022

Kirit Karkare received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2017, where he worked on the BICEP/Keck Array cosmic microwave background experiments. He then held a Grainger/KICP Fellowship and an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Chicago, working on the SuperSpec mm-wave spectrometer and CMB-S4. His research focuses on developing novel mm-wave instruments to improve measurements of large-scale structure, constraining the physics of inflation and dark energy.

Yuanyuan Zhang, 2016-2021

Yuanyuan Zhang received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, where she studied the evolution of galaxy clusters. She is currently an associate fellow at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at the University of Chicago and is involved in the Dark Energy Survey.

Alex Drlica-Wagner, 2013-2018

Alex Drlica-Wagner received his Ph.D. from Stanford University, where he worked on the Fermi Large Area Telescope as the Paul Giddings Graduate Fellow. Drlica-Wagner continued his work with the Fermi-LAT while participating heavily in the Dark Energy Survey. His primary research interest is in understanding the fundamental nature of dark matter through observations of the smallest galaxies.
