Distribution of matter on super-galactic scales encodes a wealth of information about the constituents of our Universe, its evolution and initial conditions. An efficient extraction of this information requires accurate analytic and numerical methods to capture the non-linear dynamics of gravitational clustering starting from stochastic primordial density inhomogeneities. I will describe an approach based on ... Read more about "Understanding the large-scale structure of the Universe"

Abstract: Surface-associated assemblages of oxygenic microbial phototrophs (microalgae and cyanobacteria) in biofilms and photosymbioses are characterized by a high optical density and (sub-)mm-thick photic zones, wherein steep and dynamic gradients of light, temperature, pH, O2 and other chemical species modulate photosynthetic performance. While application of various microscale methods has given detailed insight to photosynthesis in ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Coral Biophotonics and Microscale Canopy Effects""
