Cosmology Initiative

The TAP Cosmology Initiative brings together theory, computation and data driven astrophysicists to tackle some of the most pressing problems in Cosmology and Fundamental Physics, including the Nature of Dark Energy and Dark Matter, using next generation computational simulations, codes and observational surveys. 

TAP Lectureship Invites: Neal Dalal, Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics

The Gravity and Cosmology Initiatives will jointly host Neal Dalal, February 15-21, under the TAP Lectureship Series.

A TAP Cosmology/Gravity Lecture is scheduled for Monday, February 19, 10:00am. More information and lecturer’s schedule can be found at TAP Lectureships.


We are interested in exploring dark energy, dark matter, modified gravity, and galaxy formation through a mix of observations, simulations, and analytical calculations.


We research how the evolution of dark matter and dark energy drive the formation of galaxies and supermassive black holes.


We create detailed simulations of galaxies like the Milky Way and its neighbors and utilize large volume cosmological simulations in order to understand the nature of dark matter and the physics of galaxy evolution.
