Eve M. Vavagiakis — CV

Hello! I’m a postdoc in the Physics Department at Cornell University. I work as a part of four collaborations: ACT, CCAT-prime, CMB-S4, and SO. You can learn about each of these efforts by clicking on their name, and you can visit our group webpage here.

I completed my PhD at Cornell University in 2021, where I worked as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and Provost Diversity Fellow on instrumentation and analysis for cosmology and astrophysics.

My research today includes a mix of cryogenics design and testing, analysis of maps of the cosmic microwave background to extract thermal and kinematic Sunyaev–Zel’dovich signals, and transition-edge sensor (TES) and superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) testing.

I also work on communicating science to a diverse public audience, and am excited about my upcoming children’s books with MIT Kids Press.

When I’m not in the lab or at my desk, you can find me galavanting around the Finger Lakes on foot or on two weels.
