    "Probes of standard and non-standard cosmology"

    The large scale  peculiar  motions (deviations from a pure Hubble flow) of  galaxies are our only probe of the 

    three-dimensional distribution of the dark matter on large scales. Implications of the observed motions 

    in the late-time Universe will be discussed, with emphasis  on some long term challenges arising from the nature of these observations. 

    The talk will include a discussion of generic predictions of dark sector modifications to GR for the large scale...

    Title: Red Supergiants: New Perspectives on Dying Stars

    Abstract: Red supergiants (RSGs) are the helium-fusing descendants of moderately massive (10-25Mo) stars. As the coldest and largest (in physical size) members of the massive star population, these evolved stars serve as ideal "magnifying glasses" for scrutinizing our current understanding of massive stars and their role as supernova progenitors. RSGs are the observationally-confirmed progenitors of Type II-P, an intermediate evolutionary phase in the lifetimes of some stripped-envelope SN progenitors, and a crucial step...
