My name is Dylan Cromer. I’m a second-year graduate student in the astronomy department at Cornell University. I am currently working with Prof. Nick Battaglia on data-driven theoretical cosmology. My research centers around leveraging the cosmic microwave background and galaxy clusters to study the evolution of the universe.
I received my undergraduate degree in physics and mathematics from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where I worked with Professors Brian Dennison on the origin of fast radio bursts, and James Perkins on surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy from silver lithographic nanoparticles.
In addition to cosmology, I am interested in social science, and how data-based study can inform us about the way our societies function.
