Eleonora Di Valentino

Postdoctoral Researcher of Astrophysics, University of Manchester

I am a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Manchester. My area of research is focused on cosmology, mainly on Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropies, and cosmological data analysis to constrain properties of the early and recent Universe and fundamental physics. A major goal of my research is to constrain neutrino physics and other light fundamental particles such as axions with cosmology, using different observables and methods that offer complementary informations. Moreover, I'm investigating the main tensions present between the different cosmological probes and models, trying to understand if they can have a physical explanation, going beyond the standard LCDM cosmological model. I am a member of the Planck likelihood team, DES, Euclid, CMB-S4, PICO, CORE and PRISM collaborations.
