Greg Aldering

astrophysicist: Physics Division

Media contact: Paul Preuss, 510-486-6249,


Greg Aldering was a noted asteroid hunter while still an undergraduate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but by the time he joined Berkeley Lab’s Physics Division in 1995 his interest had turned to cosmology. He has been a member of the Supernova Cosmology Project since 1995, well before its surprising discovery of dark energy, and he has led the Nearby Supernova Factory since its founding in 2001. He has discovered and classified many hundreds of supernovae.
