W.L. Kimmy Wu

I am currently a KICP fellow at the Kavli Institute of Cosmological Physics (KICP) at the University of Chicago.

My research areas include cosmology, inflation, and gravitational lensing. I use cosmic microwave background (CMB) observations to test cosmological models. Specifically, I am a part of the BICEP/Keck Array and the South Pole Telescope collaborations. In addition, I am interested in using Machine Learning techniques for astrophysics, and I am a part of DeepSkies Lab.

Before joining KICP, I was a Croucher Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley as part of Professor William Holzapfel's SPT group. I obtained my Ph.D in physics from Stanford University in 2015 working with Professor Chao-Lin Kuo's group on BICEP/Keck.

I grew up in Hong Kong and I moved to Ann Arbor, MI for my undergraduate studies. I like good coffee, good food, and skiing.
