Current Henslow Fellow - Dr Chandrima Ganguly
Appointed in October 2019, Dr Chandrima Ganguly is Wolfson College's current Cambridge Philosophical Society Henslow Fellow. She is a cosmologist interested in testing early universe models and using cosmology to constrain particle physics and theories of gravity. She is passionate about gender justice advocacy and does so through various projects and initiatives.
"My research concerns the very early Universe and the question of the Big Bang and whether it actually happened. One of my friends once called me a 'space archaeologist' and I think I have used that phrase to describe my work in cosmology ever since."
