Anthony Challinor was a University Research Fellow in the Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, from 2002–2007. He is currently Reader of Astrophysics and Cosmology at the Institute of Astronomy and Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Cambridge.
Anthony has a range of research interests in physical and theoretical cosmology, mostly centred on the issues of testing the cosmological model and the origin of cosmic structure with cosmological observations. A particular focus is the the origin, interpretation, and measurement of temperature anisotropies and polarization in the CMB. He is a Core-Team member of the Planck High-Frequency Instrument with particular interests in lensing of the CMB, constraining the key cosmological parameters and searching for B-mode polarization induced by gravitational waves from the early universe.
