Speaker for November 12: Margaret Ikape

Margeret Ikape

At 7:00 PM, 2021 November 12, online on Zoom, the Sunshine Coast Centre of the RASC presents Margaret Ikape, who is doing the presentation “Probing the Epoch of Reionization with the Simons Observatory”.

Abstract: Astronomers are currently trying to understand some gaps in our knowledge of the history of the universe, and I am interested in filling in the blanks in the Epoch of reionization. Using computer simulations, and then later data from the Simons Observatory, I’ll discuss how we work towards understanding some fundamental questions about the epoch of reionization, like how big the first stars were and how long it took the universe to reionize.
