I am a theoretical physicist with specialization in theoretical cosmology.

My primary research interests are inflatitonary model building, especially multi-field inflationary scenarios and the string theoretical landscape, cosmological perturbation theory, Non-Gaussianities, (p)reheating, and theoretical methods to describe large scale structure formation. I also worked on alternative proposals to inflation such as bouncing models of the universe (the cyclic/ekpyrotic scenario) or string gas cosmology, and moduli stabilization in string theory.

I teach regularly, most recently courses on Cosmology, General Relativity and String Theory, and I am active in outreach activities.
