Hidde Jense

Research student,


I am a post-graduate research student, working on Cosmology with Dr. Erminia Calabrese since October 2020. Before this, I obtained both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Leiden University, graduating with my Master's thesis on an Effective Field Theory for Inflation.

Within my PhD research, I am working with observations of the CMB by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) and the Simons Observatory (SO) collaboration. Within these collaborations, I work on the pipeline for foreground extraction and cosmological parameter estimation.

Apart from cosmology, I am always interested in talking about linguistics, where my main interest lies in the languages of the near East during the pre-Classical era.


Research interests

I am very much interested in Cosmology, both from a theoretical and observational aspect.

I am currently working within the Simons Observatory (SO) collaboration and on the observations of the CMB by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT).
