Areas of expertise: Astronomy, cosmic inflation, accelerating universe, dark matter/dark energy, solar storms, cosmic microwave background physics, public outreach in science

As a cosmologist, Will Kinney, PhD, explores the origins of the universe and how the universe is changing. He recently published a study contradicting the well-publicized dark flow theory, which makes the controversial suggestion that the distribution of matter in our universe is not uniform. Kinney is a co-founder of Buffalo's Science & Art Cabaret series, which brings scientists and artists together several times a year to discuss topics from magic to black holes. The series, which is free and open to the public, launched in 2009 and hosted its 10th event in 2012. Prior to joining UB in 2003, Kinney was a research scientist at Columbia University's Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Physics and a research associate at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
