Chandrima is Wolfson's Henslow Junior Research Fellow. She is a cosmologist in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. She is interested in extracting observational signatures of very early universe cosmological models that could be detected in the universe today. She is also interested in using cosmology to constrain particle physics beyond the standard model – such as constraining the nature of dark matter and dark energy. She has interests in late time tests of modified theories of gravity. She is also passionate about gender justice advocacy and does so through various projects and initiatives.
Celia is a historian of Central Europe in the twentieth century. Her research seeks to explore the history of socialism, nationalism, gender, and human rights in contemporary Europe from a transnational and global perspective. She currently holds two AHRC research grants as principal investigator. Celia will be teaching at the Faculty of History and become a Director of Studies in History.
We look forward to hearing more about the research of both these accomplished Fellows.
