Event Details

Extracting the maximum amount of astrophysical and cosmological information remains a challenge in the current and future reionization surveys. These include, for instance, the recently launched NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the Euclid, the Spectro-Photometer for the History of the Universe, Epoch of Reionization, and Ices Explorer (SPHEREx), the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope (Roman), and many more. Due to the unprecedented sensitivity and large field of view, future surveys will enable detecting the majority of high redshift sources (quasars and galaxies) responsible for reionization on extremely large scales (> Gpc).  Hence, a new generation of theoretical models is required to maximize the scientific return of future surveys. In this talk, I will present my progress in modeling and constraining various reionization key observables using different models and techniques. I will conclude by summarizing my current research projects and future research directions.
