Department in the News: Jan 3, 2019
Hu's research seeks to understand how the structure of the universe formed. His models are based on clues from astronomical observation, such as tiny temperature differences in the afterglow of the Big Bang, the clustering of galaxies, and gravitational lensing - the effect that distorts our readings of faraway galaxies. He also develops and tests theories for dark energy and cosmic acceleration.
