My research group investigates a range of topics in fundamental physics, using the Universe as a laboratory to explore scales and energies that cannot be probed in any terrestrial laboratory. Our research requires tight coupling between the experimental, analytical, and theoretical disciplines. We design, build, and field experiments including balloon-borne and space-based telescopes. Our investigations include the study of the statistical properties of the Cosmic Microwave Background and the observable impact of dark matter threading the visible matter of our Universe.
