## Research

Broadly, my research is in the fields of cosmology and large-scale structure. I am interested in understanding how structure forms in the universe, which involves running and analyzing complex simulations that numerically solve equations of motion for cosmological systems. These simulations allow us to determine predictions for the nonlinear behavior of cosmological theories as well as search for obervational signatures that could potentially allow us to distinguish between competing cosmological models. In particular, the discovery of the accelerated expansion of the Universe has motivated a wealth of theories of dark energy and modified gravity. Simulations allow us to determine new ways of testing these theories.

Below, you will find information on some of the projects that I am involved in as well as work I did for my thesis. I have also written an overview of my current research intended for a general audience.
