Marina Ricci

Permanent Researcher, Laboratoire Astroparticule & Cosmologie, IN2P3

My main interests are in large-scale-structure cosmology and astrophysics, and in galaxy clusters in particular. I am deeply involved in the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC), and primarily in the Galaxy Clusters working group, in which we aim at using LSST-detected clusters to constrain cosmology. My current work focuses on the characterization of the cluster detection algorithms, the measurement of the mass from weak lensing and the building of the cluster cosmology pipeline. I am also particularly interested in projects involving external instruments, and I have expertise in multiwavelength approaches. Apart from science, I am also a member of the DESC Collaboration Council and a past member of the EDI committee. In the past years, I have started to mentor people from different backgrounds and career stages, and I have received training for it. I would be happy to mentor and collaborate with LSST-DA Catalyst Fellows interested in the DESC!
