The UWC Astrophysics group is playing host to two visitors from the Missouri University of Science and Technology; Prof. Shun Saito and Dr Sid Gurung Lopez. With over 30 years of partnership between the two universities, strengthening the ties between the two astrophysics groups would aide in improving international collaboration. 

Our guests also presented their research which covered, theoretical cosmology and computational cosmology. Prof. Saito talk covered ‘Towards a robust analysis of the redshift-space bispectrum’  which sees to trace the large-scale structure of the Universe in 3D with galaxy clustering and/or with intensity mapping. Dr Lopez presented ‘Modeling Lyman alpha emitters in the epoch of reionization’ which looks at detecting galaxies in the early Universe.
