Nonlocally modified gravity and numerical relativity in cosmology
As I am a newcomer at ICS, I propose to briefly describe the spectrum of
my competences by summarising my previous and current works. I will
then mostly focus on yet my two main research subjects that lie in
modified gravity and numerical relativity applied to cosmology.
First, I will provide details on observational constraints and Bayesian
model selection studies in a particular class of modified gravity theories,
i.e. nonlocal gravity, where complementary cosmological data from
probes such as the cosmic microwave background, supernovae, galaxy
clustering but also future gravitational waves interferometers are considered.
In a second part, I will describe my research in numerical relativity
where we aim to solve for the evolution of dust bodies within the
context of numerical relativity, that is, where the dynamics of gravity
is resolved by using full (i.e. non-perturbed) General Relativity.
