I am working on bimetric theory, a modified theory for gravity. Einstein’s theory of general relativity is a well-established theory for gravitation and it has strong empirical support. However, there are several anomalies suggesting that there should be physics beyond Einstein. Since 2011 it has been known that bimetric theory provides a consistent framework in which gravity could be placed. The question is if this is the route that nature has taken. In order to decide upon that issue, we are analyzing different solutions to the bimetric equations of motion. In particular, we are looking at the consequences on cosmological scales and for the existence and formation of black holes.
