Curriculum vitae

Research interests

My research interest is gravitation and cosmology, with main focus on cosmological structure formation. More specifically, my current research objectives include

  • perturbation theory and asymptotic analysis, 
  • developing fast and/or accurate N-body simulation techniques for cosmic structures, and
  • resolving the fluid regime of dark matter around caustics/shell-crossings.

Applying state-of-the-art techniques borrowed from high-energy physics and mathematical fluid dynamics, I develop novel tools to determine the large-scale structure to high accuracy.
