About Me

Joachim Harnois-Deraps, PhD

Ernest Rutherford Fellow, STFC

I am a cosmologist interested in the technique of weak gravitational lensing as a probe of dark matter,
dark energy, massive neutrinos, baryon feedback mechanisms and modifications to the theory of gravity.
In combination with other probes, weak lensing can reveal a wealth of information about our Universe.

I am part of the Kilo Degree Survey, LSST and Euclid, wherein I am developping novel techniques to better analyse cosmic shear data.
My novel simulation-base methods extract the non-Gaussian information stored in the matter field,
and can potentially improve by a factor of three the precision on the dark energy equation of state!

You can find an updated list of my publications here .
