KICP Visitor Program
Dear prospective visitor,
We have an active program of visitors to our Institute. In keeping with our mission, we encourage and support visits from scientists who have interests, or who wish to develop interests, in several of the areas in which we do research. This helps the cross-fertilization that we find important for advances in Cosmological Physics. If you would like to visit our Institute, please contact any of our members or fill in a Visitor application form.
We encourage longer visits which typically involve collaborative activities with a number of Institute members. Financial support will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. For administrative purposes, we have 3 classes of visitors: "short term", "long term", and "seminar/colloquium".
On our List of KICP Visitors pages, you can find out who is currently visiting and who has visited us in the recent past.
Thanks for your interest in the KICP,
KICP Visitors & Symposia Committee.
My main research area is cosmology spanning from cosmological parameter constrain to cluster selection in large survey. By visiting the KICP, I enstrengthen the connection with the South Pole Telescope team. We forge ahead on joint cluster finder based on sub-mm and optical wavebands data. The weekly group discussion helps me to share thoughts and compare methods to improve our result. Also the creative people and collaborative environment point my future work in multiple directions. I am looking forwards to a fruitful year at KICP. Here I want to thank Prof John Carlstrom for offering me the visit. Also thank Thomas Crawford, Lindsey Bleem and William High for those instructive discussion we had.

I'm having a great time here at KICP on my sabbatical. I'm enjoying the diverse range of great colleagues to interact with, and the numerous stimulating visitors. I'm also really enjoying the large number of lively postdocs and students. The young people here seem especially curious about lots of different topics, not just their specialty. No doubt this is a reflection of the interdisciplinary vision of the KICP.
