I am thrilled to announce that I will be moving to NYU in the Fall to take up a Simons Junior Research Fellowship, as publicised on the official page of the Simons Foundation. This was already obvious for those who follow me on Facebook and Twitter, especially given my numerous recent visits in NYU, but I thought I’d post an official message here too.

I’ve had an absolutely amazing time in UCL. These 4 years have deeply changed me, and I was very lucky to study and work in such a wonderful scientific and social environment. Special thanks to Hiranya for being an exceptional mentor, and to my collaborators and friends in UCL and beyond. I have learned a lot from you, about research and life in general, more than I could never hope.

But it is time to move on. Moving to NY(U) is a big step, and I am excited to join the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics, where I hope to initiate exciting collaborations. Fortunately it will not be an abrupt move since I will be visiting UCL/London on a regular basis for personal and professional reasons. But a new chapter will start this Fall, so stay tuned!
