Research Area: 

Ph.D., California Institute of Technology

David Kirkby is a cosmologist seeking a better understanding of the cosmic acceleration that drives the universe to expand faster each day: is this because some form of dark energy pervades the universe and is increasingly overshadowing matter in shaping its cosmic future, or is our theory of gravity incomplete on the largest scales?

He is a member of two large international collaborations to survey the cosmos: DESI and LSST-DESC.
