I am a cosmologist, and I analyze data from galaxy surveys and CMB experiments to test fundamental physics using the largest scales of the universe. I exploit the clustering of galaxies and quasars, as well as their cross-correlation with CMB lensing and other observables such as cosmic shear. One of my specialties is to deal with complicated systematics in low signal-to-noise regimes to track down signatures of fundamental physics.

I am a cosmologist, and I analyze enormous data sets provided by the most advanced telescopes and satellites. I use the large-scale distributions of galaxies and quasars to test our understanding of the Universe on large scales, and also test fundamental physics at energies inaccessible to particle accelerators.
