Thomas Tram is appointed as of 1st March 2021 as associate professor in theoretical cosmology at Department of Physics and Astronomy.

His research is about testing new cosmological models by calculating their effect on the cosmic microwave background and the universe's large-scale structure.

Thomas comes from a position as assistant professor at the department, and graduated from Aarhus University, where he earned his PhD degree in 2012. Throughout his career, he has conducted research at the Ecole École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, as well as the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) in Portsmouth, Great Britain.

Thomas was born in the small town of Galten, 20 km west of Aarhus, and now lives in Vejlby-Risskov with his family. He is married and has two children who take up three - and seven years in March. In his spare time, he does long-distance running.
