Data@breakfast webinar: The puzzle of Hubble constant – a holographic Universe solution
Prof Yin-Zhe Ma & Dr Wei-Ming Dai will present The puzzle of Hubble constant: a holographic Universe solution
Bio: Prof. Yin-Zhe Ma is an associate professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He obtained his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2011, then conducted postdoctoral researches at the University of British Columbia and the University of Manchester before joining UKZN. His research focuses on observational and theoretical cosmology aimed at understanding the fundamental laws of the Universe and uncovering the nature of dark energy and dark matter. In particular, he works on Epoch of Reionization, 21-cm Intensity mapping, and cosmic microwave background radiation. He is currently a member of the Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Team (HERA), several working groups of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) team, the Planck science team, and the TAIPAN/6dFGS galaxy survey team.
Dr. Wei-Ming Dai is a postdoc at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2018 and has since worked with professor Yin-Zhe Ma at UKZN. His research interests include 21-cm intensity mapping, cosmic microwave background radiation, neutrino cosmology, large-scale structure, and data analysis.
