My name is Dylan Cromer. I’m a third-year graduate student in the astronomy department at Cornell University. Right now I work on using galaxy clusters to understand fundamental cosmology and physics. I am advised by Nick Battaglia.
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.
Broadly my interest is in leveraging science, math, and computing for understanding the universe, and for social good. Right now I focus mostly on studying the universe, but am also interested in how the same tools can be applied in the social sciences.
