I’m a Research Fellow in Cosmology at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, in the University of Portsmouth.

Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher in cosmology at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory / California Institute of Technology / University of California Riverside. I got my Ph.D. in physics in 2016 at the Institute of Space Sciences in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

I develop new numerical cosmological simulations in the preparation of future cosmological experiments, that will produce the most accurate maps of the large-scale structure of the Universe. The ultimate goal of these missions is to better understand the properties of the elusive dark matter and dark energy components of the Universe.

I have produced realistic simulated catalogs in various models of gravity, which serve as a laboratory to make theoretical predictions and to test methodologies under clean and known conditions. These simulated data sets are key to understand statistical errors and to mitigate systematic errors.
