  • Speaker/s

The beginnings of the XXI century brought the development of the standard model of cosmology. The Universe is made of a 70% of dark energy, a 25% of dark matters and a 5% of ordinary matter. Even with a dark sector that still needs to be studied, this theory has had a brilliant success in the explanation of the cosmos. However, some new results obtained in the last few years could imply a new paradigm change. Some incompatible measurements of the expansion rate of the Universe and its smoothness place the standard model in tension. In this talk I will present a review of the new cosmology and the dark sector of the Universe, and of the tensions it faces and their possible consequences in our understanding of the cosmos.

  Guillem Anglada-Escudé

Guillem Anglada-Escudé obtained the Physics degree(2002) and PhD at Barcelona University (2007), and afterwards worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the USA (Carnegie Institution for Science, Washington DC), Germany (University of Goettingen) and the UK, where he became a Reader in Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London. He returned to Spain at the Institute of Space Sciences (CSIC), where he is currently a Staff Scientist.

He has research expertise on precision techniques for exoplanet detection, data analysis and astronomical instrumentation, and has also led numerous exoplanet discovery studies, including the one that reported Proxima b, the nearest terrestrial exoplanet to the Solar System. He is also interested in Solar System exploration, science communication and astrophysics with small satellite platforms (such as cubesats). He currently does research on machine learning techniques to disentangle small exoplanet signals from astrophysical noise, and leads the development of a small satellite deboted to all-sky photometric monitoring in colaboration with the IEEC.
