Staff Profile

Dr Cora Uhlemann

Lecturer - Applied Mathematics


I am a theoretical cosmologist working on modelling the cosmic large-scale structure and using it to probe fundamental physics and cosmology.

Before I came to Newcastle, I was a Research Associate in the group of Paul Shellard at The Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in Cambridge and a Research Fellow at Fitzwilliam College (2017-2019). Earlier, I was a PostDoc at the Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics in the group of Enrico Pajer at Utrecht University (2015-2017). I finished my PhD in Theoretical Cosmology in 2015 at the LMU Munich, supervised by Stefan Hofmann.

Together with Ulrike Böhm, I am running the facebook page for female physicists, called 'Physikerinnen'. Every week, we highlight an excellent woman in physics (from student to professor) as 'female physicist of the week'. 

If you want to learn more about me and my research, I answered some questions for:
