Research statement

I wish to build understanding of the physics of candidate models of gravity and dark energy in analytically inaccessible regimes by use of state of the art simulations. Doing so is a promising avenue to discriminating novel theories, and to prepare their modelling for confrontation with upcoming surveys.

Education/Positions
  • October 2024 ⇨ 2026?: Postdoctoral position - Central European Institute of Cosmology (CEICO), Prague

    Will be working on among other simulations of modified gravity and extended cosmological models.

  • 2020 ⇨ September 2024: PhD in Astrophysics - Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA), University of Oslo (UiO)

    Project: Modified Gravity at Galaxy Cluster Scales using N-body simulations. Started in September. Supervised by David F. Mota.

  • 2018 ⇨ 2020: MSc in Astrophysics - ITA, UiO

    Thesis title: “Charged Black Hole Mergers: Emissions, Orbital Evolution, Gravitational Waveform and Observer Bias”. Work resulted in 3 papers. Supervised by David F. Mota and Jose Beltrán Jiménez.

  • 2015 ⇨ 2018: BSc in Physics - Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim

    with a theoretical and numerical profile. Ask for subject and grades.
