The aim of this contribution is to provide a short introduction to recently investigated models in which our accessible universe is a four-dimensional submanifold, or brane, embedded in a higher dimensional spacetime and ordinary matter is trapped in the brane. I focus here on the gravitational and cosmological aspects of such models with a single extra-dimension. 
The nature of cosmological singularities in isotropic universes and braneworlds
We explore the character of finite-time singularities that are possible to arise in FRW universes and in specific braneworld configurations. For FRW universes, we derive a first classification of
Brane-World Gravity
TLDR
This review analyzes the geometry, dynamics and perturbations of simple brane-world models for cosmology and astrophysics, mainly focusing on warped 5-dimensional brane -worlds based on the Randall-Sundrum models.

Scalar kinks and fermion localization in warped spacetimes
Scalar kinks propagating along the bulk in warped spacetimes provide a thick brane realization of the braneworld. We consider here, a class of such exact solutions of the full Einstein-scalar system
Modified gravity and cosmology
Having as a starting point the problem of dark energy described before, this thesis studies modifications of General Relativity (GR), as possible gravitational scenarios for the early and late time
Investigation into compactified dimensions: Casimir energies and phenomenological aspects
The primary focus of this dissertation is the study of the Casimir effect and the possibility that this phenomenon may serve as a mechanism to mediate higher dimensional stability, and also as a

Evolution of cosmological perturbations in a brane-universe.
TLDR
In the present Letter, the impact of the existence of extra dimensions on cosmology, in particular, on the evolution of cosmological perturbations is analyzed.
Submillimeter test of the gravitational inverse-square law: a search for "large" extra dimensions.
TLDR
The gravitational 1/r(2) law is tested at separations ranging down to 218 microm using a 10-fold symmetric torsion pendulum and a rotating 10- fold symmetric attractor to improve previous short-range constraints and find no deviations from Newtonian physics.
