Dr Jeremy Sakstein
Visiting Research Fellow
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, Portsmouth University. Previously I was a visiting fellow at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and before that I was a Ph. D. candidate at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge.
My research interests lie in testing fundametal physics using cosmology and astrophysics. I am particularly interested in theories of modified gravity that contain screening mechanisms such as chameleon, galileon and massive gravity theories. Much of my day to day research focuses on looking for stellar and galactic probes of these mechanisms.
