Zhaodi Pan received his B.S. in Physics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2013 and his M.S. in Physics from the University of Chicago in 2016. He is now a Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago whose research interests are instrumentation and data analysis for Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) experiments. His current work includes developing the currently most compact Fourier-transform spectrometer for millimeter CMB-related spectral measurements and gravitational lensing analysis with data from the third-generation camera for the South Pole Telescope (SPT-3G). His previous work focused on detector characterization and development for SPT-3G.
Scientific Advisor: John E. Carlstrom
The South Pole Telescope (SPT) is a ground-based telescope measuring the Cosmic Microwave Background with unprecedented sensitivity. I mainly work on detector characterization, related instrument design, and gravitational lensing data analysis for the third generation camera of SPT (SPT-3G).
