I am a researcher at the Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón (CEFCA), a position I have held in conjuction with a Ramón y Cajal fellowship since mid 2011. I am a cosmologist interested on the formation and evolution of our universe. My work has mostly focused on the study of the secondary anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background, on topics ranging from cosmological recombination, cosmological reionization, peculiar velocities, bulk flows, clusters of galaxies, to missing baryons and dark energy.
In 2011 I also became a Career Integration Grant fellow, under project CIG 294183 LSSvsCMB funded by the European Council. The LSSvsCMB acronym stands for “The Interplay between Large Scale Structure and the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation”. In this project, evaluated in 2014 by the Comission, I coordinate joint analyses of different galaxy surveys sampling the large scale structure of the Universe with measurements of the anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation. As a result of this project, I have actively participated in the study of the Integrated Sachs Wolfe (ISW) effect for the BOSS collaboration, in the ISW study for the Planck collaboration [1,2], and also in the search for bulk flows and kinetic Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect in Planck data [3,4]. By using public Planck data plus public galaxy catalogues, I also led another work in which we presented the detection of practically all the missing or hidden baryons in and around a set of ~200,000 galaxies in the local universe.
Here in Teruel I am coordinating CEFCA’s cosmological analysis of the J-PAS survey, although I am or have been also involved in other major cosmological probes like Euclid, Planck, ALHAMBRA, BOSS and ACT.
