Broadly speaking, my main interests are in theoretical astrophysics and cosmology.
I have worked on large scale structure, the intergalactic medium, gravitational lensing,
early universe physics, particle astrophysics and extra-solar planets.
You can find my publications at the astro-ph,
hep-ph and hep-th archives.
for computing velocity two-point correlations, and the associated
magnitude covariance for standard candles (such as supernovae). The
code also contains portions useful for computing power spectrum,
growth factor and cosmic distances.
