Lecture: Mapping the Universe

On large scales, galaxies in the Universe are distributed in a vast three-dimensional cosmic web that results directly from the physical conditions of our Universe at very early times. Over the last two decades astronomical surveys have slowly but surely mapped the positions of millions of galaxies over extraordinary volumes, in an effort to understand the dynamics, composition and underlying rules that govern our Universe. In the final talk of the series, Dr. Rita Tojerio will review our progress, the state-of-the-art, and the future of mapping the Universe.

Speaker: Dr Rita Tojeiro is a Reader in Astrophysics at the University of St Andrews, where she studies the Universe on large scales and how galaxies evolve with it.
