Abstract
The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is a photometric galaxy survey which, using measurements of distortions to galaxy shapes from weak gravitational lensing and other observables, we can use to test the validity of our standard cosmological model, LambdaCDM. In my talk, I will give an overview of how we obtain cosmological constraints from DES weak lensing and galaxy clustering measurements, and how we approach extending that analysis to models beyond LambdaCDM. As a specific example, I will motivate and discuss my ongoing analysis using a "growthgeometry split" parameterization to compare constraints from structure growth and expansion history, and thus to perform a consistency test of our standard cosmological model.
