Alumnus of the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, Dr. Enrico Pajer has received his PhD from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and has worked at Cornell and Princeton Universities. Since 2014, Enrico is Assistant Professor of Theoretical Physics at Utrecht University and a member of the Delta-ITP. Enrico's major contributions have been within the field of cosmology, namely the study of the constituents of universe, their properties and their evolution in time. 
Enrico has played a crucial role in the construction of explicit and realistic models of the first fraction of a second after the big bang, within the context of string theory, the leading candidate for a unification of gravity and quantum mechanics to arbitrary high energies. The detailed predictions of his models for the distribution of matter and light in the universe are been currently compared with the latest cosmological observations. In 2012, Enrico proposed a new way to extract information from the oldest light in the universe, the so-called Cosmic Microwave Background, using its spectrum and temperature. In the future, his approach is expected to lead the most accurate information on the fundamental physical interactions at energies much higher than those achievable on earth. In his most recent work, Enrico has developed a consistent and accurate framework based on hydrodynamics to study the distribution of matter in the universe.
