Quantifying tensions – inconsistencies amongst measurements of cosmological parameters by different experiments – has emerged as a crucial part of modern cosmological data analysis. Statistically significant tensions between two experiments or cosmological probes may indicate new physics extending beyond the standard cosmological model and need to be promptly identified. We apply several tension estimators proposed in the literature to the dark energy survey (DES) large-scale structure… 
Redshift requirements for cosmic shear with intrinsic alignment
. Intrinsic alignment (IA) modelling and photometric redshift estimation are two of the main sources of systematic uncertainty in weak lensing surveys. We investigate the impact of redshift errors
Two Sides of the Same Coin: Sterile Neutrinos and Dark Radiation, Status and Perspectives
The presence of light sterile neutrinos is one of the unanswered questions of particle physics. The cosmological counterpart is represented by dark radiation, i.e., any form of radiation present in
What does a cosmological experiment really measure? Covariant posterior decomposition with normalizing flows
Methods to rigorously extract parameter combinations that are constrained by data from posterior distributions are presented, and non-linear methods that can be used with non-Gaussian distributions, and are independent of the parameter basis are developed.
Cosmological constraints on light but massive relics
Many scenarios of physics beyond the standard model predict new light, weakly coupled degrees of freedom, populated in the early universe and remaining as cosmic relics today. Due to their high

The results applied to the DES Y3 data demonstrate how the ratios provide significant improvements in constraining power for several nuisance parameters in the model, especially on source redshift calibration and intrinsic alignments (IA).

Testing the consistency between cosmological data: the impact of spatial curvature and the dark energy EoS
The results of joint analyses of available cosmological data have motivated an important debate about a possible detection of a non-zero spatial curvature. If confirmed, such a result would imply a
Advances in constraining intrinsic alignment models with hydrodynamic simulations
We use galaxies from the illustristng, massiveblack-ii, and illustris-1 hydrodynamic simulations to investigate the behaviour of large scale galaxy intrinsic alignments. Our analysis spans four
A Bayesian interpretation of inconsistency measures in cosmology
A Bayesian interpretation of inconsistency measures that can extract information about physical inconsistencies in the presence of data scatter is proposed based on the conditional probability distribution of the level of physical inconsistency given the obtained value of the measure.

Quantifying dimensionality: Bayesian cosmological model complexities
This work demonstrates a measure for the effective number of parameters constrained by a posterior distribution in the context of cosmology that compares favourably both analytically and numerically in a cosmological context with the existing measure of model complexity used in the literature.
