I am an Assistant Professor at the Kavli IPMU and at the Institute of Physics of the University of São Paulo. I received my PhD from McGill University.
My field of research is in the interface between cosmology, astrophysics, and high energy physics. My work focuses mostly on studying the dark sector. I am mostly worried about dark matter, focusing on ultra-light dark matter. I am also interested in the late expansion of the universe, studying the phenomenology of dark energy. I also study several topics in early universe cosmology, including the initial singularity, the early evolution of the universe, and reheating. Testing those models using the current observational probes and new observational windows is also part of my research.
I am a Serrapilheira Institute grantee since 2021.
