Elisabeth Krause

Assistant Professor of Astronomy

Assistant Professor of Physics

Ph.D. 2012, California Institute of Technology 

Elisabeth's research focuses on the intersection of theoretical and observational cosmology. She is broadly interested in using observations of the large-scale galaxy distribution to constrain the composition and initial conditions of the Universe. She has worked on a wide range of topics and methods in Large Scale Structure research, from analytic calculations of systematic effects required for the interpretation of data from upcoming photometric and spectroscopic surveys, analysis of numerical simulations, to data processing and clustering measurements. She is leading the Theory and Joint Probes working group within the Large Synoptic Survey Telescopes' Dark Energy Collaboration and co-coordinates the Theory and Combined Probes working group within the ongoing Dark Energy Survey.
