Uroš Seljak's research is in cosmology, where he combines theoretical, numerical, and data analysis methods to investigate the universe properties using cosmological observations, from cosmic microwave background to present day galaxy and dark matter distributions. His recent work combines statistics, numerical optimization, and N-body simulation methods to analyze large cosmological surveys, both space based (WMAP, Planck, Euclid, WFIRST) and ground based (SDSS, DESI, LSST).
