Morgane König is a postdoctoral fellow in theoretical cosmology at MIT and at Dartmouth College. Her research focuses on the study of the universe as a whole, from the era of inflation to the present. Born and raised in Paris, she holds an SB in Mathematics and Physics and an MS in Cosmology, both degrees from Pierre and Marie Curie University. In 2021, König earned a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the University of California, Davis, where she worked with Professor Nemanja Kaloper, making her the ninth Black woman to ever complete a doctorate in theoretical physics in the United States, and the first Black student to earn a PhD in physics from UC Davis.
