Biography

Dr David Parkinson is a cosmologist, testing theories of the creation and evolution of the Universe against observational data from telescopes and satellites. He joined UQ to work as part of the WiggleZ collaboration, trying to determine the nature of the mysterious Dark Energy that drives the acceleration of the universe (the discovery that won Brian Schmidt the 2011 Nobel Prize for Physics). He is investigating alternative theories to Einstein's long-standing theory of gravity.
