My Research Interests

Observational cosmology. Data-analysis for Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) polarization experiments, map-making procedures, component separation algorithms to forecast B-modes. Estimation o f cosmological parameters from observational data.

Modelling Galactic Emission at the microwave and sub-millimetric frequencies. Modelling the polarized emission coming from synchrotron, thermal dust, molecular line processes contaminating th e CMB signal.
