    Astronomical Optics and Data Analysis/Statistics

     

     

            Since starting my PhD in Experimental Physics in Ireland in 2004, I have been mainly involved in the pre-launch characterization (optics, coupling with detectors) of the HFI instrument on board the ESA Planck satellite. This work has been followed, while working France and the UK, by a data analysis + astronomical optics phase. In addition to these technical aspects, I have also taken an active part in management (such as Planck-HFI optics working group coordinator). I have also worked on other issues, such as the ASI LSPE experiment and ESA ITT contracts.

    Optical and horn antenna simulations for the European Space Agency (ESA) Planck satellite High-Frequency Instrument (HFI).

      Data analysis for Planck - HFI. Main tools: custom-made Fortran and IDL codes used within the mission mainframe (computer clusters, mission specific programming environment).. Elementary knowledge of Python.

    Evaluation of systematic effects deriving from optical components and other mission parameters on polarised Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) observations. This ongoing work is focused on a possible next-generation ESA CMB polarisation satellite (akin to COrE) and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) Large-Scale Polarization Explorer (LSPE).

     Member of Planck non-Gaussianity working groups (isotropy and statistics of the CMB and cosmic strings).. Usage of R statistical environments.
