Martin Sloth named professor of theoretical cosmology

April 28, 2016

Martin SlothStarting May 1 2016, Martin S. Sloth will be a professor of theoretical cosmology at the University of Southern Denmark. Though a young researcher, Martin has a great deal of high-impact scientific work behind him, both at CP3-Origins at other places. He received his PhD from the University of Helsinki in 2003, and before joining CP3 in 2012 he has held research positions at Geneva University, CERN, Aarhus University and the University of California, Davis.

Martin S. Sloth is an expert on theoretical cosmology. He is one of the discoverers of the curvaton mechanism and also contributed to the understanding of IR divergences in de Sitter space in similar fashion to how the infrared issues in Quantum Electrodynamics (QED), was resolved in the 1950’s by use of inclusive cross-sections. Most recently, with his group at CP3-Origins, he has worked on inflationary magneto-genesis, synthetic tensor modes (new mechanisms for generating  primordial gravitational waves), mu-distortion of the CMB, and a new Dark Matter paradigm, called Planckian Interacting Dark Matter (PIDM).
