My research interests include a number of topics in cosmology. I have been involved in The Dark Energy Survey collaboration. I used DES data to develop my PhD. thesis work. I have been computing angular two point auto and cross correlation functions. Also, I have been developing with my collaborators methods to extract the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) scale relying on observable quantities only. I am interested in large-scale structure of the Universe, in galaxy-galaxy clustering and General Relativity. Moreover, I have a great interest in high energy physics, theoretical and experimental.
