I work on searches for physics beyond the standard model. Given that a large class of models describing physics beyond the standard model predicts the appearance of topological defects, I study the consequences of these phenomena in the large scale structure (LSS) of the universe. My work involves performing numerical computations that simulate these effects to find optimal statistics that extract the signal from the topological defects. The primary goal of this study is to favor or discard classes of models that extend the standard model. I used various numerical computational tools, such as N-Body simulation (CUBEP3M, Gadget, PKDGRAV3, and PICOLA) and data analysis (Curvelab, S2let).
