Role: Postdoctoral researcher on theoretical cosmology
Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço, Faculdade de Ciências, Campo Grande, PT1749-016 Lisboa, Portugal
I am interested in classical and quantum gravity models for the early and late time universe.
My research aims in understanding the nature of the mysterious dark energy responsible for the observed acceleration of the universe today, and whether Einsein's general theory of relativity is modified at the largest scales in the universe.
On the same time, I am interested in understanding the role of quantum gravity effects at the very early times of the evolution of the universe, mainly in the context of the non-perturbative approach of the Asymptotic Safety scenario for quantum gravity.
