Brief Introduction

Sebastian Garcia-Saenz is a theoretical cosmologist whose research covers a wide range of topics in early-universe physics, gravitation, particle astrophysics and high-energy physics. He is particularly interested in developing new approaches to the dark energy problem as well as new paradigms of cosmic inflation.
