Title: The Phenomenology of Gravity
Abstract: The "standard model" of cosmology has had enormous success, fitting a vast array of observations with a very limited number of parameters. How best to modify this model for the next generation of observations remains an open question. Here I present recent work towards a framework for such modifications that preserves important General Relativistic principles without introducing new degrees of freedom.
