Research interests

My research interest is gravitation and cosmology, with main focus on cosmological structure formation. More specifically, my current research objectives include

  • perturbation theory in standard and non-standard cosmological models,
  • resolving caustics/shell-crossings in cosmic fluid descriptions for dark matter, and
  • General Relativity, e.g. how massive neutrinos can be incorporated in N-body simulations.

Applying state-of-the-art techniques borrowed from high-energy physics and mathematical fluid dynamics, I develop novel tools to determine the large-scale structure to high accuracy.
