Marco Bonici

I am a PhD Student at Università degli Studi di Genova. I am a memeber of the Euclid Consortium. Euclid is a space-based mission which will map the galaxy distribution in order to study the nature and origin of Dark Energy and Dark Matter. In the consortium, I am active in the developement of tools used to analyze data and perform cosmological analysis.

Speeding up cosmological data analysis with Julia
Marco Bonici

In the next few years, upcoming cosmological survey are going to produce a large amount of data. In order to extract as much information as possible, we need adequate software tools to analyze data. I translated my Python3 code, that I use to predict cosmological observable, in Julia. After a month of work, with no previous Julia exposure, I obtained a speed up of about 20. Now I am looking further to extend my Julia code and to apply extensively it in my research.
