Personal profile


My primary goal as a researcher is to shorten the bridge between theory and observations in Cosmology. My strategies to achieve this goal are: 

  1. Accurate predictions of observables matching the accuracy level of the upcoming galaxy surveys. Examples of this are my PhD work on Effective Field Theory of Large Scale structure and my work on lensing and unequal-time correlators during my first postdoc at the University of Manchester.
  2. Open-source software: science should be open, completely accessible and easily reproducible. Examples of this are my contributions and authorship in a variety of high-quality open-source software:  SkyPy, unequalpy and corfu.
  3. Team work: fostering collaborations and respectful team dynamics, internationally and at my place of work. Currently, I am a coordinatior of the SkyPy collaboration and Validation Lead of the Spectroscopy Visibility Mask of the Euclid Science Ground Segment.
  4. Leadership skills developed through my own collaborations: EFTpy with an international team of experts in Dark Energy, and QGTpy connecting quantum thermometry and cosmological observations.
