CosmoCoffee is a weekly seminar at the University of Helsinki where researchers in cosmology and related fields gather to discuss the field’s recent developments and published articles over a cup of coffee. In spring 2018, we gather on Thursdays, 14:15-15:00, in the Physicum room A311.

All participants are encouraged to bring up papers they wish to discuss. We also have scheduled student presentations where PhD students discuss their current work in an informal environment.


We gather every week, unless otherwise specified.

Schedule for the student presentations is:

  • 15.2. Eemeli Tomberg: Higgs inflation at the hilltop.
  • 15.3.  Pyry Wahlman: Are Palatini formalism and metric formalism equivalent in Lovelock gravity?
  • 26.4. Valtteri Lindholm: Tweaks to galaxy 2-point correlation function estimators.
  • 3.5. Vera-Maria Enckell: Higgs-R^2 inflation.
  • 17.5. J-M Ojanperä: Ashtekar formalism and non-minimal coupling to a scalar field (eventually Higgs).
