I am a researcher at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA).
I try to understand how galaxies and the matter between them evolve and cluster in space by developing algorithms for data intensive applications to realize, simulate and analyze the massive amount of information becoming available about the large scale structure of the universe.
Simulation, observation, and data analysis are becoming more and more intertwined as the meaning of empirical information begins to play a dominant role over the sheer amount. I have been working mostly in simulation, but I find that data analysis is playing an increasing larger role, with many exciting new possibilities. It is a great time to be working in cosmology.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or comments.
