"Physics of the Dark Energy Survey (TBC)"
ABSTRACT:

DES is an ongoing imaging sky survey, the largest such survey to date. Its main science goal is to shed light onto dark energy by making precision measurements of the expansion history and growth of structure in the universe. In this talk I present an overview of our latest results and introduce a new DES initiative: searches for optical counterparts to gravitational wave events.
