Cora Dvorkin is an assistant professor in the Department of Physics in the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Shutzer Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute.

Dvorkin studies questions in fundamental physics that can be tested with cosmological data, including theories related to inflation, dark matter, dark energy, and neutrinos. For this purpose, she uses data from the Cosmic Microwave Background and the large-scale structure of the universe. She earned her PhD in the Department of Physics at the University of Chicago and has conducted postdoctoral work at the School of Natural Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, and at the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
