My research focuses on characterizing the dark components of the Universe, in particular, the elusive dark energy. I develop multiple and complementary approaches to extract optimal constraints on these components, from available and future observations. I have studied in detail the integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect, which I extracted from the correlation between the cosmic microwave background and large scale structures. In particular, I made use of original tracers of matter: CIB and cosmic superstructures — voids especially. I also study the large structures and dark energy through the mass function of galaxy clusters, which is exponentially sensitive to the growth rate of structures in the Universe. My work has often been linked to —and benefited from —my involvement in ongoing experiments, most notably within the Planck collaboration and the Euclid consortium.
