Reinabelle Reyes and cosmology

Dr. Reinabelle Reyes, Postdoctoral Fellow at Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics at University of Chicago, will give a talk on cosmology at the Cafe Scientifique in The Mind Museum on 11 February 2012, 4:00-6:00 p.m.  Dr. Reyes finished her Ph.D. in Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University (Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Student Award) in 2011 and her B.S. Physics (Summa Cum Laude) at Ateneo de Manila University in 2005.

Acccording to Dr. Reinabelle Reyes’s web page in the Kavli Insitute:

My research centers on weak gravitational lensing in galaxy surveys, namely SDSS (Sloan Digital Sky Survey) and DES (Dark Energy Survey). Galaxy – galaxy lensing is a powerful and versatile tool that can illuminate many problems in cosmology and galaxy formation. Recent and ongoing work focus on observational constraints on disk galaxy formation and evolution from combined photometry, lensing, and kinematics.

Below is the official announcement of Dr. Reinabelle Reyes’s talk from the Mind Museum:


Dr. Reinabelle Reyes

Cafe Scientifique goes Galactic!

Our Milky Way galaxy is one of hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe.  Like humans, galaxies are born, grow old, and die.  Reinabelle Reyes, an astrophysicist, who made headlines around the world when she led a team to confirm Einstein’s theory through 75000 galaxies, will guided us through this process using the latest cosmological simulations.

Join us and learn the story of how galaxies have formed over the last ten billion years, and how our own Milky Way galaxy will meets its end a “mere” three billion years from now.

  1. Mass is an energy form of quantum vacuum in symmetry with diminished energy density of quantum vacuum. Presence of mass diminishes energy density of quantum vacuum respectively to the energy of a given mass. A given particle with a mass diminishes energy density of quantum vacuum, mass-less particle does not diminish energy of quantum vacuum. In order to explain mass of elementary particles this view does not require existence of the hypothetical boson of Higgs.

    Srečko Sorli Nirvikar Open letter to scientific community
    Dear Sirs,
    Higgs boson will be never discovered as it not exists.
    Physicists as the CERN know that, what they are telling us this days in media is just to get money for searching for a black cat in a black room that is not there.
    Our research shows mass has origin in energy density of quantum vacuum.
    Yours Sincerely, Amrit Sorli, Space Life Institute

    She studied straight for a Ph.D. even without a Masters’ Degree? Is that possible? She really is smart. 🙂
