Clem Pryke

Assistant Professor

I did a BSc in Physics at Leeds followed by a PhD in Leeds' Ultra High Energy Cosmic Ray Group. I went to the U.S. to do cosmic ray research at the Enrico Fermi Institute, working on the design of the Pierre Auger Observatory.

I became an Assistant Professor in Experimental Cosmology at The University of Chicago in 2002. For the last few years I've been working on the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropy telescope DASI which is sited at the South Pole, leading the effort to set limits on cosmological parameters using the data. I am currently working on a new radio interferometry array to learn about cosmology by studying distant clusters of galaxies. Also planning an even more ambitious telescope at the South Pole
