Jaime Ruiz Zapatero

PhD Student


My name Jaime Ruiz Zapatero and I am an Astrophysics Phd student working with Prof Pedro Ferreira and Prof David Alonso.

Originally. I am from Cádiz, Spain but I moved to the UK four years ago to course my higher education.

Prior to joining the University of Oxford, I studied a Msci in Theoretical Physics at UCL where I worked with Dr Benjamin Joachimi.

Also, I am very fond of physics outreach to bring science to talent born in marginalized communities.

My interests in astrophysics have so far been focused at the boundary between observations and theory in Cosmology.

Currently, I am working on reconstructing growth of structure across cosmic time by fitting free functions to a wide array of data sets across different redshifts.

Moreover, I am also interested in developing methodologies to probe the LCDM model for internal inconsistencies. Particularly, I am interested in possible discrepancies between the perturbative and the non-perturbative aspects of its theory.

Besides astrophysics, I have also collaborated in a number mathematics papers regarding the reformulation of different constrained optimization problems on Euclidean space into unconstrained problems on the appropriate manifold.
