Gravitational waves can provide an accurate measurement of the luminosity distance to the source but cannot provide the source redshift unless the degeneracy between mass and redshift can be broken. This makes it essential to infer the redshift of the source independently to measure the expansion history of the Universe. We show that by exploiting the clustering scale of the gravitational wave sources with galaxies of a known redshift, we can infer the expansion history from redshift unknown…

In this proceedings, we are interested in dark gravitational wave standard sirens and their use for cosmology and for constraining modified gravity theories. Due to the extra friction term introduced
Dancing in the dark: detecting a population of distant primordial black holes
. Primordial black holes (PBHs) are compact objects proposed to have formed in the early Universe from the collapse of small-scale over-densities. Their existence may be detected from the observation
