Woman and Girls in Science - Meet our researchers: Licia Verde

Published on 14.02.2020


Licia Verde is a cosmologist and an ICREA professor at our Institute. She was awarded the Catalonian National Research Award of 2019, given by the Catalan Foundation for Innovation and Research, with the support of the Catalan Government.

She focuses on the large-scale structure of the Universe, and analyzes big galaxy surveys.

Liciais an ICREA professor since 2007, and belongs to the Cosmology and Large Scale Structure research group at the Institute of Cosmos Sciences. Cosmology is the field of astrophysics that studies the origin, evolution and composition of the universe. Her group focuses on finding explanations for some of the still unanswered questions of cosmology, such as what dark energy is, or what originated the universe’s primordial perturbations or if there are any indications for deviations for the model which may indicate our lack of understanding of the Universe. They also investigate if the current model of cosmology, known as the standard model LCDM properly adjusts to the cosmological observations.
