Curriculum Vitae

I obtained my PhD at the University of Southampton and worked as a postdoc at Penn State University before joining the AEI.
I am a postdoc working in the field of Numerical Relativity, mainly focusing on the binary black hole problem.

With the imminent detection of gravitational waves from the Advanced LIGO project, and the selection of a gravitational-wave (GW) mission by ESA, the importance of accurate models of sources of gravitational waves, necessary for detection and source identification, and hence astrophysics, is more urgent than ever. As the only method by which the fully general-relativistic two-body problem can be solved to arbitrary accuracy, Numerical Relativity is an essential component of a comprehensive approach to GW source modelling. In recent years, much progress has been made, but much remains yet to be done. The field of NR is also expanding beyond its traditional GW focus into areas such as cosmology and mathematical relativity.
