Astrophysics and Cosmology

I am actively involved in cosmological surveys that explore the sky and our universe at different wavelengths: the South Pole Telescope (SPT, millimeter-waves or microwaves) and the Dark Energy Survey (DES, optical galaxy survey with a focus on weak gravitational lensing). I am also involved in the upcoming Euclid survey and the Rubin Observatory Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) (both are optical lensing surveys) and CMB-S4, a next-generation ground-based mm-wave survey.
To analyze these survey data, I employ numerical simulations, Bayesian statistics, and machine-learning techniques.
