My research interests

Observational Cosmology:

Searching for high-z quasars at z>6.5, using the ESO VISTA telescope, where these objects can be used to probe a specific era the universe underwent known as 're-ionization'. From probing the re-ionization era, we can study the formation for the first large structures such as Stars, Galaxies and Super Massive Black Holes.

Probing Modified Gravity Theories:

With the use of Wide-Stellar Binary systems, we can probe the extremely weak-field limit of gravity. I produce simulations and compute the observables for each modified gravity theory for on-going and future observations.
