Subodh Patil

A paper co-authored by NBIA Assistant Professor Subodh Patil entitled “Magnon Inflation: Slow Roll With Steep Potentials” has won third place in the 2017 Buchalter Cosmology Prize. The committee recognized its “insightful and systematic treatment of the effective field theory of inflationary dynamics dominated by terms with a single time derivative”. The Buchalter Prize, created in 2014, aims at rewarding new ideas or discoveries that have the potential to produce a breakthrough in our understanding of the origin, structure, and evolution of the Universe.
