Ph.D., Harvard University, 2019


Victor Buza received his PhD from Harvard University. For his graduate career, he codeveloped the likelihood analysis framework used to analyze BICEP/Keck/Planck/WMAP data and place the tightest constraints on primordial gravitational wave to date. He was also the author of the performance-based forecasting framework that guided the optimization and design of CMB-S4, and determined the currently proposed baseline CMB-S4 instrument configuration. As a KICP Fellow Victor plans to work closely with the KICP community on theory and analysis for CMB polarization experiments (SPT-3G, BICEP/Keck, CMB-S4) and cross-correlations of CMB data with large-scale structure efforts (DES/LSST).
