Studied at

University of Ljubljana, Slovenia (2013)

I work on large-scale structure and evolution of the high-redshift intergalactic gas, and its implications on cosmology and the epoch of reionization. My main topic of study is the Lyman-alpha forest measurements and how to use them to constraint various cosmological and astrophysical parameters governing the intergalactic medium. I am working on several aspects of the Lyman-alpha forest, from data-analysis, using new measurements of the various statistics (both large data-sets and small high-resolution data), to large hydro-dynamical simulations of the intergalactic medium, to theoretical modeling.
