About us Practical matters How to find us prof. dr. D. (Diederik) Roest

Research interests

My research interests include theoretical aspects of cosmological models, particularly those of the primordial Universe, as well as field theory aspects of gravity. In the former field, I have contributed to different models of inflation, as well as their observational signatures. In the latter field, my main interests currently focus on the double copy framework of gravity.

Groninger Wetenschapsquiz:

Wij leven in een lappendeken van mini-heelallen

Het heelal groeit, maar hoe snel eigenlijk?

Het heelal dijt steeds sneller uit, maar waarom, dat zit theoretici nogal dwars

We leven toch misschien niet in het saaiste heelal dat je kunt bedenken
