Welcome to my homepage

I am a Professor (Lehrstuhlvertreter) at the University Observatory Munich, part of the Faculty of Physics of the Ludwig-Maximilians University. On this page you will find a few useful links to my research and teaching.

I am primarily interested in the analysis of the large-scale structure of the Universe and its impact on our understanding of early- and late-time cosmology. An area of expertise is the study of the external correlations between galaxy distributions and the cosmic microwave background; I use such observations to test models for the accelerated expansion of the Universe. I also have an interest in the observational consequences of the physics of the early universe, such as cosmic inflation, which I also constrain with galaxy surveys. For these goals, I work with theoretical and numerical modelling and data analysis. I am leading related work within the Dark Energy Survey collaboration, which is imaging 5000 square degrees of the Southern sky to unprecedented depth. Here you can find a list of my publications.


In the Winter semester 2016/17, I am teaching the first part of the Essential Astrophysics course for Master students of the LMU.
