Welcome!

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California Santa Cruz, working within the IMPS group at the Astronomy and Astrophysics Department. I devote my main research efforts to make the "dark" Universe and its filamentary network that we call the "Cosmic Web" visible to our optical telescopes. I work on both numerical and observational aspects of cosmological structure formation. If you would like to know more about my past and current research follow this link.
