In the name of God

Dr Hossein Moshafi

I’m a computational cosmologist at Ibn Sina interdisciplinary lab of Physics Department at Shahid Beheshti University (SBU) in IRAN. Also I’m teaching Astronomy & Astrophysics Olympiad for high-school students.

My field of research is mainly observational cosmology including observational constraints on dark energy models, early universe models, future forecast for models and etc. .

I have Ph.D. in Physics from IASBS. I have M.Sc in Cosmology field from Shahid Beheshti University (SBU). Also I passed B.Sc. course at Sharif University of Technology (SBU).

I’m expert in using cosmological codes such as: CosmoMC, CAMB, CLASS, CosmoLib, Gadget2, HEALPix, GLESP and etc. .

You can find more about cosmological codes here. Also there is some useful stuff about science of my works here.


About field of study:

We work on the CMB (Cosmic Microwave Background ) , the radiation which is remnant of early stages of the universe. CMB is most important tool for discovering our universe and its history and origin. Also by analyzing CMB data we can check our cosmology models. We prepare for analyzing the data that will get from Planck mission and extract many useful results.

In Our work we use some software packages such as: CAMB, CMBFAST, CMBEASY, HEALPix and etc.

Here is some of important references for study about CMB:
