I am a PhD student studying cosmology in the
Theoretical Astrophysics Including Relativity (TAPIR)
group at Caltech.
My thesis adviser is Prof Marc Kamionkowski.
I am interested in figuring out the nature of the major components of our Universe:
dark energy and dark matter.
My approach to this task is to attack from two fronts: I work on
searching for signatures of new physics in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB)
temperature and polarization maps,
and investigating what we can(not) learn from upcoming
experiments for direct detection of particle dark matter. Among my other research interests
are questions of statistical recovery of the redshifted 21-cm signal from cosmic reionization and
using CMB data to constrain reionization models.
Here is a current list of my publications.
When I am not absorbed into the affairs in the Dark Universe,
I love to play volleyball, hike and travel with my
translate books into Serbian, cook tasty foods, make clay pots,
and just enjoy life with my friends, or work on solving
it with my mentees.
