HMC Expert: Jason Gallicchio

Experimental Cosmology, Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Theory

Jason Gallicchio, PhD, specializes in experimental cosmology—the study of the origin and evolution of the universe. Gallicchio spent a year at the South Pole Telescope where he researched polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) and served as a South Pole NSF Station Science Leader. He is also interested in devising new ways to conduct fundamental tests of quantum mechanics and has designed improvements for Bell-type tests of quantum entanglement.

Gallicchio has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champagne, and a PhD in physics from Harvard University.
