Dr. Bradford Benson is senior member of the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics (KICP) and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Chicago, and an Associate Scientist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Dr. Benson received his Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University in 2004 and his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, before doing postdoctoral research at the University of California-Berkeley and the University of Chicago. Dr. Benson is an experimental cosmologist, who studies the cosmic microwave background: the relic radiation from the very early Universe, which was emitted only 380,000 years after the Big Bang. His research takes him to the very ends of the Earth, namely the South Pole, where he builds instruments designed to answer some of the biggest questions in cosmology: What physics was responsible for the Big Bang? What is the Universe made of? What is Dark Energy?
