Trying to understand the universe

About me

I am an NRF Research Fellow at the Dept. of Astronomy within the YOUNG group at Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea. Currently, I hold an independent research grant from the National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Korea.  I worked previously at University College London working within the Galaxies and Cosmology research group. I gained my BSc & MSc in Astrophysics from the University of Glasgow in 2005 and studied for my PhD at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG), U. of Portsmouth (2010).

My research so far has concentrated on the statistical and observational aspects of Cosmology. During my PhD I looked at constraining cosmological parameters using the 3-point correlation function (Bispectrum) of Luminous Red Galaxies (LRGs) in combination with large cosmological N-body simulations. I have been involved in the Dark Energy Survey  (DES), the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) and current I work within the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) collaboration.
