## Summary

My expertise lies at the interface between particle physics, gravity and cosmology where I develop and test new models and paradigms.**Early Universe Cosmology**: Probing signatures of the Early Universe be it for inflation or its alternatives.**Dark Energy**: What is the source of the late–time acceleration of the Universe ?**Cosmological Constant Problem**: Understanding the effect from vacuum energy of particle physics on cosmological scales.**Behaviour of Gravity**: Deriving alternatives to General Relativity with an emphasize on theoretical consistency and quantum stability.**Tests of Gravity**: Gravitational Waves, Lab, Solar System, Astrophysical and Cosmological signatures and tests of Gravity and screening mechanisms.**UV Completeness**: Understanding the low-energy restrictions to the existence of a standard high energy completion and consequences to Cosmology and Particle Physics.
