I'm interested in the relic radiation from the early universe, the CMB. I try to separate out the intrinsic background signal from the galactic and intergalactic foregrounds by using numerical simulations. This is important for the Planck mission as signatures of inflation may lay buried beneath a thick layer of foregrounds, lmiting our ability to extract a cosmological B-mode polarisation signature, which would be a strong piece of evidence in favour of inflation.
