Investigator

Title of the project Studying cosmic voids and dark matter via Doppler lensing
Primary and secondary scientific disciplines astronomy
PhD student Justyna Borkowska
Faculty Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics
Supervisor prof. dr hab. Boudewijn Roukema

Description of the project Characteristics and main objectives of the research project:

  • studying the density profiles of cosmic voids and galaxy dark matter haloes using Doppler lensing
  • applying general relativistic cosmological simulation codes to the study
  • developing general relativistic cosmological simulations software
  • comparing results to observations (galaxy surveys)

The project is conducted in cooperation with: University of Tasmania, Australia
