Background

Chihway Chang received her Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University in 2007 and a B.S. in Physics from National Taiwan University 2003. Prior to her appointment in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, she was a KICP fellow at the University of Chicago and a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Astronomy at ETH Zurich. She is currently an active member of the DES and the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration.

Research

Chihway Chang is an observational cosmologist who uses cosmological surveys to constrain the content and evolution of the Universe. The primary tools she uses are optical surveys such as the Dark Energy Survey (DES) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). She is also preparing for data from the Large Synoptics Survey Telescope (LSST) when it becomes available. Chihway's research focuses on weak gravitational lensing measurements, and cross-correlating them with other probes [e.g. the CMB, large-scale structure] to constrain cosmology.
