Yashar Hezaveh


I am a Hubble Fellow at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford University.  


My research is primarily centered on strong gravitational lensing of high redshift, dusty galaxies, with a special focus on mapping the detailed distribution of dark matter on small scales in lensing halos. Understanding the small scale distribution of dark matter can give us invaluable clues to the nature of dark matter. 


Prior to coming to Stanford, I completed my PhD at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) and my honours in physics and astronomy at University of Victoria (Victoria, Canada).
