Research interests: I study models of the very early universe and the origin of structure in our Universe. I have worked on inflationary models where variations in the primordial distribution of radiation and matter on very large scales can arise from quantum fluctuations on very small scales. Much of my current work is devoted to understanding the non-linear evolution of cosmological perturbations and how non-linear effects may be observed in current and future data. I have also studied alternative proposals for the origin of structure including pre-big bang and ekpyrotic models.
