Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) Icon Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST)
The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is a NASA observatory designed to perform wide-field imaging and surveys of the near infrared (NIR) sky.

SPHEREx will conduct an all-sky spectral survey in the near-infrared.

Euclid Icon Euclid
Euclid is a mission designed to study "dark energy", the hypothesized cause of the Universe's accelerated expansion. I am a member of the NASA-funded Euclid Science Team.

Planck Icon Planck
Planck is the first European mission to study the birth of the Universe. Planck was launched on May 14, 2009.

Spider Icon Spider
Spider is a balloon borne observatory designed to probe the epoch of Inflation through measurements of the CMB polarization on the largest angular scales.
