I am currently a PhD student at University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, working for August Evrard. My main area of research is Clusters of Galaxies and Large-Scale Structures, with emphasis on multiwavelength clusters detection algorithms.

We are working on characterizing X-Ray and optical cluster finders using simulations data. The result of this work help us to undestand upcoming data from DES and XMM-XXL survay better.
