Alexander Jenkins

Institution UCL
About Alex Jenkins is a theorist with broad interests in cosmology, relativity, and gravitational physics. After obtaining his BA and MSci in Astrophysics at the University of Cambridge (2013–2017), he moved to King’s College London for a PhD in Theoretical Physics (2017–2021), before taking up his current role as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at UCL. His research at King’s focused on the exciting new field of gravitational-wave astronomy, with an emphasis on using gravitational-wave observations to probe cosmology and fundamental physics, and this remains one of his core research interests. At UCL he is working on the False Vacuum Decay, using numerical simulations to better understand this fascinating process and its implications for the early Universe, as well as providing modelling support and theoretical predictions for the QSimFP programme.
