Research Interests
Colin Bischoff is an observational cosmologist focused on measurements of the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). Measurements of degree-scale CMB polarization are a powerful tool to search for primordial gravitational waves, which may have been generated during a theorized period of cosmological inflation. He is involved with the currently observing BICEP telescopes as well as the planned CMB-S4 experiment. His areas of expertise include instrumental systematics, calibration, and separation of CMB and foreground signals.
