Our Universe: The Past 13.8 Billion Years and the Future

Join University of Pittsburgh Cosmology Professor Andrew Zentner as he discusses the history of the universe and where we are going – on a cosmic scale.

Like the universe itself, data about the cosmos continues to expand. Zentner’s research aims to make predictions that are unique and testable in a continuing effort to understand what's happening on a galactic scale. His work ranges throughout a broad cross section of cosmology, encompassing galaxy formation, the phenomenology and identification of the dark matter and dark energy, and astrophysical limits on fundamental physics.

Zentner received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City and his PhD from The Ohio State University in 2003. He joined the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh in 2007.
