Associate Professor of Physics, Rochester Institute of Technology

Dr. Michael Zemcov is an experimental astrophysicist at the Center for Detectors of the Rochester Institute of Technology whose scientific background and interests are centered on cosmological observations including studies of diffuse radiation in the cosmos, particularly the cosmic microwave and infra-red backgrounds. Currently, his focus is on the measurements of cosmic large scale structure, the epoch of reionization, secondary anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background, and the history of the star formation in the Universe. Dr. Zemcov has extensive experience with instrumentation, observation and data analysis throughout the electromagnetic spectrum from the optical to the radio, with particular emphasis on the infra-red and sub-mm/mm regimes. He is currently involved in a number of projects in a variety of roles, ranging from technology development to the scientific interpretation of data from mature instruments.
