In search of Dark Energy

Royal Astronomical Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, 9 November 2018

We present some of our research on the use of Bayesian inferences in cosmology, and in particular in DES Year 1 results, at this event organised by the Dark Energy Survey Collaboration.  The group will also explore the latest reports on Supernova Ia, galaxy clusters, weak lensing, and probe integration ahead of DES observations coming to a close in February 2019 with more results to follow.

Searching for Dark Matter and Dark Energy

For the second year in a row, our project features in the Edinburgh International Science Festival with a panel discussion that brings together cosmologists searching for dark matter and dark energy at the Dark Energy Survey. We will discuss problems and prospects coming from the latest DES data. For tickets and info please see visit the EISF website.

14-16 June 2017, Dark Energy Survey Collaboration Meeting, Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics / University of Chicago

Michela Massimi will take part in the Summer 2017 internal meeting of the Dark Energy Survey. Michela will also present her ERC research in a session of this 5-day DES Collaboration internal meeting dedicated to a forthcoming book on DES, with Prof. Ofer Lahav, UCL, and Dr Lucy Calder, UCL.

ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC Apparatus)

Wednesday 22 March 2017, Royal Observatory of Edinburgh

Michela Massimi, Casey McCoy and Nora Boyd meet Prof. John Peacock, Dr Joe Zuntz and Dr Alex Hall to read and discuss recent articles on the discrepancy in the latest measurements of the Hubble parameter, the effectiveness of different probes for dark energy, and the state of art in the search for dark matter (enough to mull over for some time).

Monday 27 February 2017, UCL, Department of Physics and Astronomy

Michela Massimi and Casey McCoy will meet Prof. Ofer Lahav and the Cosmology Group at UCL for the next steps in our fieldwork research in Dark Energy Survey.
