Research

My main research focuses on understanding the origin, past, present and future of our Universe. I am interested in tackling open fundamental topics in cosmology such as the nature of dark matter and dark energy, as well as the initial conditions of our Universe. In particular, I have mainly focused on testing different models of dark energy and developing mathematical methods to test gravity on large scales in general.
