Field of Study

Theoretical Cosmology
Rennan Barkana studies cosmic dawn, the era of the formation of the first stars in the universe. He constructs models and simulations in order to predict the properties of the galaxies in which the first stars and black holes formed, and studies ways to observe them, especially with radio waves from hydrogen at a wavelength of 21 cm.
