LATEST RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT
A few new papers from the Kilo-Degree Survey. Our latest data release three is described in de Jong et al. (2017). Furthermore, we have carried out another cosmological study. In Harnois-Déraps et al. (2017), we cross-correlate the cosmic shear signal, described in great detail in Hildebrandt et al. (2017), with the lensing signal from the Planck CMB satellite. The results are in good agreement with the results on cosmological parameters from the KiDS survey and within 2-sigma of a Planck cosmology. Agreement further improves once the contribution from intrinsic alignments is taken into account.

I am a Marie Curie Fellow in the department of Physics at the University of Oxford. I am a Cosmologist and interested in the composition and evolution of the Universe as a whole. My main research aim is to understand the elusive dark matter via the study of cosmic structure formation.
My teaching activities build around my assignment as stipendiary lecturer at University College Oxford where I teach Relativity and Optics to first and third year Physics students. Oxford is a special place to study with its collegiate structure and the personal tutorial experience at the colleges. It is this unique combination that makes Oxford so successful.
