I work on the time delay interferometry (TDI) technique for LISA, to model and understand the impact of realistic instrumental noise on the LISA science exploration in the context of building an infrastructure for the global fit in LISA. I mainly develop algorithms and methods for astrophysical data analysis incorporating instrumental artifacts into these analyses, and I investigate the use of TDI channels for optimizing the observatory performance and disentangle possible gravitational wave (GW) background noise. Indeed, multiple ground-based detectors employ cross-correlation methods for signal-to-noise disambiguation, as they all respond to such GW background in similar frequency bands. Conversely, for LISA, correlation with other detectors is not possible as we do not expect to have another detector sensitive to gravitational waves in the same frequency band as LISA operating at the same time. Thus, quantifying and understanding the background instrument noise is essential for maximizing the observatory performance for scientific data analysis.
