My research focuses on the combination of Bayesian inference and Machine Learning methods for applications to cosmology and other areas (for example geophysics - check out my publications for details).
In cosmology, I am particularly excited about weak gravitational lensing with optical galaxy surveys like ESA’s Euclid satellite mission.
I am Lead of the Euclid Weak Lensing End-to-End Performance Group and of the Euclid Pre-launch Key Project “Weak Lensing Systematics Review”. My group has the responsibility of quantifying the impact of multiple systematic effects on the final cosmological constraints from Euclid weak lensing data.
