Collaborative Research

The Institute is the culmination of ten years of crosscutting research, strategic hiring, interdisciplinary partnerships, and proven collaborative relationships with technology companies like Microsoft and Google. It provides a remarkable opportunity to change the way we undertake astrophysics and to answer some of the most fundamental questions about the origins of our Universe.

In this collaborative environment, focused research teams composed of students, postdoctoral fellows and data scientists will focus on astrophysical and cosmological research areas. They develop new approaches for managing, storing, and accessing petabyte data sets and running analyses at scale and within these databases.
