Marcelo Alvarez


I am a scientist in the Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Previously I worked at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford, the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics in Toronto, and most recently the Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics.

I investigate how galaxies and the matter between them evolve and cluster in space by developing algorithms and software to process, analyze and simulate the massive amount of information becoming available about the large scale structure of the universe from cosmological surveys. In particular, I am an active member of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, Simons Observatory, and CMB-S4 collaborations.
