WHAT YOU WILL GAIN
Instructors will provide you with the necessary background to participate in original scientific research
in Cosmology and Astrophysics. This includes (but is not limited to) elements of computer programming,
an introduction to supercomputing, physics, astronomy, and mathematical techniques. You will interact
with experienced researchers in a team effort to break new ground in this exciting field.
MEET THE RESEARCH TEAM
Paul Shapiro is the Frank N. Edmonds, Jr. Regents Professor in Astronomy
at the University of Texas, Austin.
He received both his A.B. (1974) and Ph. D. (1978) from Harvard University. He is a leading researcher in the
fields of cosmic reionization, cosmological structure formation, and astrophysical hydrodynamics and has
taught at the University of Texas for over 30 years.
Research Educator Anson D'Aloisio is a postdoctoral researcher in Shapiro's group.
He received his B.S. in Physics at the University of California, Riverside, and his Ph. D. in Physics at
Yale University in 2011. His research interests include cosmological structure formation, gravitational
lensing, and cosmic reionization.
