String Theory Cosmology and ElemPart

My research is focused on understanding the evolution of our Universe and answering the largest open questions regarding the innerworkings of Dark Matter and Dark Energy - components of the Universe we know little about. To do this, I use data from large galaxy surveys, primarily taking advantage of the phenomenon of gravitational lensing, the bending of light rays from interviening massive objects/structures. I also study the phenomenon of intrinsic alignments of galaxies, which is linked to the tidal gravitational field and plays a very important role in weak gravitational lensing measurements and in the evolution of galaxies.
