Ingyin Zaw

Assistant Professor of Physics, Science

Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi


Ingyin Zaw studies the intersection of particle physics and astronomy. She concentrates on two of the most central questions in fundamental physics: the origin of high energy cosmic rays and the comprehension of dark energy. Both topics are key to understanding the composition of the universe.

During her time as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics at New York University, Zaw collaborated on publications pertaining to her research interests. She earned her A.B., A.M., and Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University, where she taught an interdisciplinary course on imaging techniques with the medical school.
