I am now a postdoc at the Department of Astrophysical Sciences of Princeton University.

From 2016 to 2019, I was a PhD student in the CosmoStat. You can access my thesis manuscript here.

Research Interests

My research revolves around systematics in Weak Lensing, in particular errors related to the instruments' PSF (Point Spread Function). My main foci are the impact of PSF errors in galaxy shape measurements and non-parametric data-driven PSF estimation. This has led me to dabble in numerical Optimal Transport, shape measurement methods and various things related to brightness distribution moments.

Talks & Posters


I used to be the organizer of CosmoStat's CosmosClub, their irregular journal club/group seminar. You can now contact Isabella, Santiago, Tobias or Virginia if you would like to go give a talk and meet the group!
