Laura Newburgh is an Assistant Professor of Physics at Yale University. She received her PhD. in Physics from Columbia University on her work building, characterizing, deploying, and analyzing data on the polarized CMB experiment QUIET. She worked on low-temperature detector characterization, integration, and deployment for polarized CMB experiment ACTPol as a postdoc at Princeton University, and began working on novel methods of calibration for the 21cm experiment CHIME as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. Her work spans hardware, software, and analysis for CMB and 21cm cosmology through her current projects CHIME, HIRAX, Simons Observatory, and CMB-S4.
