Hello! My name is Chen Heinrich and I am a postdoc at California Institute of Technology and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). I work at the intersection of theory and cosmological observations, currently focused on using the CMB and LSS to understand inflation, reionization, dark energy and dark matter.

I am part of the WFIRST mission, a NASA satellite mission designed to study dark energy, exoplanets, and infrared astrophysics.

I obtained my Ph.D. in physics in 2017 from the University of Chicago under the supervision of Prof. Wayne Hu.

I also enjoy playing music and hiking.
