Alba Kalaja

Pre-Doctoral Fellow, Cosmology X Data Science, CCA, Flatiron Institute

Alba joined the CCA in August 2022 as a Pre-Doctoral Fellow. Alba is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Groningen (RUG), the Netherlands, where she works with P. D. (Daan) Meerburg on primordial and secondary non-Gaussianity in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). She is particularly interested in the higher-order statistics of primordial fluctuations, weak gravitational lensing, the CMB lensing bispectrum and cross-correlation with cosmic shear. She is involved in the Simons Observatory collaboration. Before starting her Ph.D. at the RUG, Alba completed her studies in Theoretical Physics at the University of Padua, Italy, and was an Erasmus+ fellow at the Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona, Spain.
