Research activities

2021-present: PhD project supervised by Anthony Challinor and Blake Sherwin. After developing a primordial B-mode delensing pipeline for the Simons Observatory and obtaining forecasted constraints on inflationary physics, I am now working on building a multitracer CMB lensing template from various cosmological datasets.

2020-2021: master's thesis supervised by Inar Timiryasov and Sergey Sibiryakov (EPFL), aiming to develop a model-independent, neural network-based algorithm to detect deviations from General Relativity in gravitational wave signals.

2019-2020: semester project supervised by Frederic Courbin (EPFL) on time-delay cosmography with lensed quasars.

2018-2019: Honours thesis supervised by Gary Hinshaw (UBC Vancouver) on the calibration of the CHIME radiotelescope.

Education

2021-present: PhD student in Astronomy, Gates Cambridge scholar.
