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.

PUEO is a balloon mission designed to launch from Antarctica that will detect signals from ultra-high energy neutrinos, particles that contain valuable clues about the highest energy astrophysical processes, including the creation of black holes and neutron star mergers. Neutrinos travel across the universe undisturbed, carrying information about events billions of light years away. PUEO would be the most sensitive survey of cosmic ultra-high energy neutrinos ever conducted. The principal investigator is Abigail Vieregg of the University of Chicago.
