My research aims at understanding the Big Bang: by studying the very early Universe we can test fundamental theories of physics, and trace the history of the first few instants of time. I am particularly interested in gravitational waves as way to directly observe the conditions when the Universe was only a few picoseconds old.
Space physics research using HPC numerical simulations (Vlasiator)
Focus on energetic particles and collisionless plasma shock
University researcher in planetary sciences, focused especially on asteroids, their optical properties, and light scattering.
