Peder Norberg

Royal Society University Research Fellow

I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow (RS URF) in the Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC) and the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy in the Ogden Center for Fundamental Physics part of the Department of Physics at Durham University. My research interests are aimed at understanding the large scale distribution of galaxies in the Universe, galaxy formation and evolution and the relation between the underlying mass and the observed light from galaxies.

Probing the Growth of Non-Linear Structure in the Dark Universe with Statistical Analyses of Galaxy Surveys

My research interests are aimed at understanding the large scale distribution of galaxies in the Universe, galaxy formation and evolution and the relation between the underlying mass and the observed light from galaxies.
Long term research projects include the preparation and exploitation of future surveys like DESI , Euclid and WAVES.

Post-Graduate Lectures

Currently I give a few post-graduate lectures for first year PhD students, with notes listed here. One of the more useful post-grad talks is likely to be the one entitled "How not to write a research proposal".
