Biographic Notes
Marina CortÍs is currently founding a new scientific field, Biocosmology. It is the first bridge connecting cosmology and biology, areas that were, until now, disconnected, through lack of a common mathematical language. Biocosmology lets us see life through the lens of black holes, dark energy, and dark matter. It is the first quantification, ever, of the value of our planet before the vastness of the cosmos.

Marina CortÍs has done extensive work in cosmology, both in large observational collaborations such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and MS-DESI, and from a purely theoretical perspective. Her work has influenced our understanding of the Universe’s youngest stages via the Cosmic Microwave Background, the mystery of its present acceleration, and especially the fundamental nature of time itself. In 2015 she was awarded the Inaugural Buchalter Cosmology Prize, jointly with Lee Smolin.
