My research aims at unveiling the nature of the dark universe, particularly dark energy, using theoretical, computational and observational tools. The current and future cosmological surveys (DES, DESI, Euclid, LSST, SKA) will allow us to probe the evolution of structures in the universe with unprecedented precision, and consequently to test GR and modified gravity.

I am particularly interested in alternative theories of gravity relevant for the cosmic acceleration and in testing these theories beyond the linear and quasi-static regimes, thus where screening effects and other non-linear phenomena become important.

Moreover, I am interested in applying topological methods to cosmological data, in order to derive information about the nature of both Dark Energy/Modified Gravity and Dark Matter.
