Hello! My name is Paulo Montero Camacho. I am from Costa Rica. I went to the Scientific High School of Alajuela, this is where my interest in physics really grew thanks to my awesome teacher Pablo Blanco. I did my physics undergraduate at University of Costa Rica, where I graduated with honors and top of my class in 2013. My undergraduate research focused on General Relativity, mainly approximate and exact solutions of the Einstein’s Field Equations. I worked with Dr. Francisco Frutos and Dr. Javier Bonatti.
I am currently a fourth year physics PhD student at The Ohio State University. My current research interests focus in cosmology, particularly early universe and non-standard probes of cosmology. Furthermore, I work for Dr. Christopher Hirata. Dr. Hirata is a member of the Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics. Recently, I have been working in CMB circular polarization, binary neutron star mergers, primordial black hole constraints and reionization.
