An active member of the international POLARBEAR, Simons Observatory, and CMB-S4 collaborations, Dr. Barron is passionate about cosmology and instrumentation. Her current research focuses on precision measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB), including building instruments to study the faint pattern known as B-mode polarization. Detailed characterization of the CMB will further our understanding of the components of the universe and its large-scale structure.
