Dr. Jonathan A. Blazek

Post Doctoral Researcher

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics and the physics department at The Ohio State University. I received my Ph.D. in physics in 2013 from the University of California, Berkeley.

I work in cosmology and astrophysics. I am interested in using large-scale structure to understand fundamental properties of the universe, including dark energy, dark matter, and inflation. I also spend time thinking about the astrophysics of galaxies and dark matter halos and their relation to cosmological probes.

More specifically, I study weak gravitational lensing, intrinsic galaxy alignments, galaxy clustering, and redshift-space distortions. If pressed, I would describe myself as a “theorist,” although I also work with observational data to make novel measurements and to test theoretical models. For more information, see my research page.
