Looking Up: Cosmology and Me

Welcome to Quantum Diaries. I’m Anže Slosar, a scientist living in New York and working at Brookhaven National Laboratory. I’ll also be occasionally blogging on this site. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I am originally from Slovenia, a small country with population of 2 
million, which was created in 1991 after the disintegration of
 Yugoslavia. I studied physics as an undergrad at the University of Cambridge, UK, and, in a typical 
Oxbridge fashion, continued my graduate studies at Cambridge. My Ph.D. 
thesis was on the Very Small Array, an interferometric radio telescope 
designed to measure fluctuations in the cosmic microwave 
background. After receiving my Ph.D., I spent six years doing postdocs at the University of Ljubljana (in the
 capital of Slovenia), Oxford University, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory before moving to Brookhaven
 Lab.

Here, I work on a mixed salad of projects, both theoretical and
 experimental, but inevitably connected to the universe we live 
in. These days, my scientific focus is on the Lyman-alpha forest, part 
of a dark energy project called BOSS (Baryonic Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey), a topic
 that takes more than a healthy amount of my time and nerves but holds
 promise of being truly revolutionary. I will no doubt write more about 
it in the coming posts.

In my spare time, I do a lot of things at a very low level: real ales,
 real food, yoga, classical guitar. And then I do things New Yorkers do, 
namely following the real estate and thinking about cunning ways 
of getting rich while burning cash on restaurants, theaters, clubs,
 galleries, and a myriad other places.

More to come.

Anže
