Profile: Prof. Liliya Williams, Director of Undergraduate Studies

I am interested in the distribution of "dark matter" in the Universe, on scales ranging from sub-galactic to those larger than clusters of galaxies. Dark matter is the dominant matter component in the Universe, yet its nature has eluded us so far. I study gravitational lensing of high redshift sources, and dynamics of individual galaxies and clusters, to gain detailed knowledge of the clustering properties of dark matter.
