Any cosmologists here?

  1. Feb 7, 2017 #1
    I'm not sure that this is the right spot for this, but I am a ( I like to think) an up and coming cosmologist. I assume that there are some theoretical astrophysicists/cosmologists present on this forum, and I wish to inquire as to your education. Namely, what degrees do you have, what did you do your PhD in and where, and so on. Of course, this is just professional curiosity, but also some element of rivalry ;)

    For example, I double majored in math and astrophysics, and then got a PhD from MIT in cosmology.

    Welcome to the forum. Generally, asking for other people's personal information is a no-no on PF but maybe your request will pass. I suggest you read the forum rules since this is one forum where the rules are actually observed. Usually.

    Welcome to the PF. :smile:

    So in line with the privacy considerations that phinds mentions, you can look through the threads in the Cosmology forum to see who the regular members are there, and then click into their Profile pages to see if they've posted some of the information that you're interested in. Some folks do fill out the Information tab on their Profile pages, and others do not. It would be inappropriate to send a Private Message to a member asking for that information, but if they have already posted the information themselves in their Profile, then they are obviously comfortable with you reading the info.

    I think he's replying to my statement that his request might pass.
