Me Professor of Astronomy and Physics
University of California, Berkeley

Chung-Pei Ma is a cosmologist and astrophysicist.

Among the topics Chung-Pei has studied are the properties of dark matter and dark energy, the cosmic microwave background, gravitational lensing, galaxy formation and evolution, supermassive black holes, and the large-scale structure of the universe. She occasionally manages to climb out of the dark and lumpy universe; during these sunny moments (or rather, moonless nights), she enjoys being an observer and studying properties of galaxies and monster black holes using big telescopes.

Four personae have been diagnosed for her multiple personality syndrome.
