Cosmology: peculiar velocity field reconstruction
Astroparticle: search for dark matter, BHs and quasars at high redshift
Brief summary of the previous  and present research works:
(1) Particle Physics and String Theory (my PhD thesis : worldsheet gravities)

(2) Large scale velocity field, Bulk flow
We have developped a method which yields velocity field at nonlinear scales and shows remarkable agreement
with simulated and observed velocities. The method has been used to constrain cosmological parameters and to
study the bulk flow and the origin of CMB dipole.  This Project is done in collaboration with Guilhem Lavaux
Stephane Colombi, Mike Hudson, Joe Silk and Brent Tully,
and on large catalogues (3k NBG, 2MRS, 6dF and SDSS)

(3) Dark matter distribution on small scales, phase structure of dark matter haloes:
Dark Matter caustics and dark matter detection
Project with Ed Bertschinger, Sergei Shanadrin, Stephane Colombi, Christophe Alard, Bernard Fort, 
Raphael Gavazzi, Pierre Salati, Joe Silk, Jacques Colin, Michel Henon, Niayesh Afshordi, Mark Vogelsberger, Simon White

(4) Black holes and quasars at high redshifts in collaboration with Jacques Colin and Raphael Sadoun

IAP Friday Colloquia
Since Septembre 2008, I also organise the IAP colloquia. The colloquia are every Fridays at 11 am
and we aim at having only the very top speakers. You can see the past and future programmes at
