Cosmic Structure and Weak Gravitational Lensing

Daniel's main research interest is weak gravitational lensing as a tool to study large structures in the Universe, such as galaxies and clusters of galaxies. The census and evolution of these structures is interesting in its own right, but it can also give us a better understanding of two of the greatest mysteries of modern physics, dark matter and dark energy. To reach that goal, Daniel's group develops new methods in statistics and data analysis for the extraction of reliable and powerful information from optical surveys and applies them to the unprecedented data sets DES, DESI and LSST are collecting now and over the coming years.
