Experienced instrumental researcher that has worked in nuclear physics, particle physics and gravitational waves (GWs). I have worked at CERN, SLAC and the Virgo and KAGRA gravitational wave observatories. The highlight of my Ph.D. has been the development of an accelerometer with an interferometric readout which is the world’s most sensitive inertial sensor from 8-100 Hz to date. Additionally, I have taught undergraduate (particle physics) and postgraduate (GW instrumentation) courses. Finally, I have benefited from the timing of the first detection of GWs, which gave ample opportunities for outreach. In my case, that led to many public seminars and a national TV appearance in The Netherlands. I now work on cryogenic inertial sensing and vibration isolation for the E-TEST project. For Advanced Virgo and future GW detectors, I lead a mode matching and cavity control project using phase cameras and other sensing solutions.

My primary research focuses on the searches for stochastic gravitational-wave background -SGWB (origin of such a background could be cosmological or astrophysical) using the data from LIGO, Virgo, and KAGRA (LVK) detectors. We have placed the most stringent bounds on the energy density of SGWBs using the latest observational data along with the (first) upper limit maps of the gravitational-wave sky at every frequency bin. We expect that the current efforts will make significant progress in the coming years and result in the first detection of SGWBs. I am also interested in understanding some aspects of the alternative theories of gravity. In the past, I have worked on black hole thermodynamic aspects of these theories in a newly developed framework called Geometrothermodynamics.

I work on extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics aimed at accounting for the observed neutrino masses and flavour mixing, the origin of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe and the nature of dark matter. I am currently developing a new computer tool (MadbaM) devoted to precision computations of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe in beyond the Standard Model realisations.
