Bio/Research

My research is currently focused on cosmology. I am particularly interested in the formation of structure in the universe. We know that the universe was in a state with density fluctuations (in the baryons) of a few parts per million when the universe was roughly 300 000 years old. Today, we see superclusters, clusters of galaxies, galaxies, stars, planets, and the world around us. This process of structure formation should have observable imprints, either through scattering effects (such as the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect) or by gravitational distortions (of distant background objects or of the microwave background fluctuations).
