Ivan Padilla

Ivan works on SPIDER, a balloon-borne, Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarimeter designed to search for inflationary B-modes. He is interested in designing, building, testing and operating instruments to answer fundamental questions in cosmology, with particular consideration to how they might contribute to the existing and future body to knowledge so as to enable an effective multi-wavelength approach.
