Dhayaa's research program focuses on extracting weak lensing data from photometric surveys (like DES, DELVE etc.) and then on using these data to probe the physics of the early Universe, such as that of inflation. He develops simulation-based tools for modeling the lensing signal and thereby constraining such physics. His work shows that with the recent advances in simulation modeling and photometric data quality, the next decade of weak lensing will have a unique role to play in our pursuit of the high-energy frontier in cosmology.
