My research is currently focused on Dark Matter (DM). In particular, I model nonlinear large-scale structure formation in the Cold DM (CDM) paradigm using numerical and analytical techniques, necessary for understanding and analyzing galaxy surveys. I also work on constraining properties of DM, like pressure and viscosity, that go beyond the CDM paradigm, using the cosmic microwave background data from Planck and linear perturbation theory.
