Richard Shaw

Radio cosmologist


I'm a cosmologist and radio astronomer at the University of British Columbia focusing on mapping the large-scale structure of the Universe with radio surveys of the 21 cm line.

Most of my recent work has been with CHIME, a novel radio interferometer designed for wide-field high sensitivity surveys.
