Dida studies the dark sector of the universe - dark energy and dark matter, which govern 95% of all the gravitational interactions in the universe, yet present a mystery to science. She finished her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Munich in 2013. There she worked on how we can detect if dark matter has a thermal velocity remaining from the early universe. She also briefly worked on gravitational lensing shear measurement testing for the Dark Energy Survey. She continuted on to the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation in Portsmouth, UK for a postdoc, where she got involved in the preparations for the Euclid mission. She's been working on everything from self-calibration to forecasting cosmological parameters with the spectroscopic survey. She focussed in particular on testing General Relativity with redshift-space distortions in galaxy clustering. She was awarded in the first round of Euclid STAR prizes in 2017.
