Originating Calendar
Physics - Colloquium

Among a handful of mysteries in the LambdaCDM paradigm of cosmology, I focus on three: Dark Matter, Baryogenesis and the origin of structure. I then provide a pedagogical introduction to Chiral Gravity and show how these three mysteries may be interconnected. I also discuss some observational windows including the inevitability of Superfluid Dark matter.

I will also perform a sonification of chirality on my soprano saxophone .
