Strictly Platonic: Seeking Astrophysicists

In honor of the fact that we, as a species, shot a freaking comet with two harpoons today, I thought I'd share this gem from the local Strictly Platonic with y'all:

Cosmologists, Astrophysicists, Particle Physicists Needed (Ann Arbor) Hello all!

I am looking for a Cosmologist, Astrophysicist, Particle Physicist, or someone with expert knowledge and a degree, who is familiar with Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials", to be a source for an academic paper. I am most specifically looking for someone who studies dark matter/energy and has opinions or evidence either supporting or eliminating Pullman's theory of Dust.

I am a Math/Science major at Washtenaw Community College. I am in the Ann Arbor area. I am looking for either a face-to-face conversation (will buy coffee!), or an email exchange with an expert in this field of study. University of Michigan or Eastern Michigan University faculty and/or researchers are most preferred.

Please email me if you're willing to talk to me and be cited as a first-hand source. I must stress that I need to find someone already familiar with Pullman's books. Thank you for reading. This is a matter of great interest to me, and this paper will mean a lot to me, whatever information I find.
