Marina Cortês


Biographic Notes
Marina CortÍs obtained her PhD in Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Sussex (UK) and at the University of Cape Town (South Africa). She has been working at the Institute for Astrophysics and Space Sciences since 2015. Prior to this she was a researcher in institutions around the world including Berkeley Lab (California, US), University of Edinburgh (UK), Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (Canada), African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (South Africa), and Institute for the Early Universe (Korea). In 2011 she was awarded the European Union’s Fellowship Marie Skłodowska Curie.
Marina works in phenomenological cosmology, constraining early universe inflationary theories and dark energy models.
She is particularly passioned about the study of the nature of time, and the origin of the cosmological arrows of time. She collaborates on this subject with Lee Smolin (Perimeter Institute, Canada). In 2015 their work was awarded first place in the Inaugural Buchalter Cosmology Prize.
