Staff Profile
I am a theoretical cosmologist working on modelling the cosmic largescale structure and using it to probe fundamental physics and cosmology. I am deputy lead of the Cosmology & Quantum Gravity research group and member of the Observational Astronomy research group.
Before I came to Newcastle, I was a Research Associate in the group of Paul Shellard at The Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in Cambridge and a Research Fellow at Fitzwilliam College (20172019). Earlier, I was a PostDoc at the Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics in the group of Enrico Pajer at Utrecht University (20152017). I finished my PhD in Theoretical Cosmology in 2015 at the LMU Munich, supervised by Stefan Hofmann.
Together with Ulrike Böhm, I am running the facebook page for female physicists, called 'Physikerinnen'. Every week, we highlight an excellent woman in physics (from student to professor) as 'female physicist of the week'.
If you want to learn more about me and my research, I answered some questions for:
My work aims at unravelling the mysteries of our universe with cosmological data. Galaxy surveys such as Euclid will map the galaxy distribution covering unprecedented vast areas of the sky and long periods of cosmic history by measuring distances & shapes of billions of galaxies tracing the cosmic large scale structure.
My research is at the heart of the precision cosmology challenge: Modelling nonlinear gravitational dynamics and extracting fundamental physics from galaxy clustering. Gravitational clustering describes the formation of bound objects from initially small perturbations. Much of the physical information is hidden on small scales, on which matter has clustered nonlinearly and is not well characterised by Gaussian statistics. I develop analytical methods for the nonlinear regime that can be combined with numerical simulations and design clustering statistics that are statistically informative and robustly predictable to extract physical insights from galaxy surveys.
