I am a particle cosmologist, my main research interests lying in the interplay between particle and gravitational physics. I am interested in extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics that address its main shortcomings, such as the origin of dark matter, inflation, the baryon asymmetry, dark energy, neutrino masses and the strong CP problem, amongst others. I am a theoretical model builder interested in looking for signatures of new physics in astrophysics and cosmology, as a complement to e.g. collider searches.
