KICP and Einstein Fellow
Ph.D., Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, 2019
Jose Maria Ezquiaga received his PhD from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. His research focuses on probing the pillars of the standard cosmological model with gravitational waves. As a KICP and Einstein Fellow, Jose will exploit LIGO's data to constrain the propagation of gravitational waves, the expansion of the Universe and the origin of the observed black-holes, anticipating as well how to improve such tests with the next generation of detectors, specially with the space antenna LISA.
Apart from thinking about the universe, Jose enjoys simple ground-based activities like outdoor sports, hanging out with friends and exploring Chicago with his bike.
