I am currently exploring the signatures of modified theories of gravity on gravitational-wave observations. In particular, I am interested in theories where black holes can manifest non-perturbative phenomena. I am also working on developing an effective-one-body formalism in modified theories of gravity.
I received my BSc degree from Alexandria University in 2016. During my undergraduate study, I did research on some of the phenomenology expected from a quantum theory of gravity, such as the implications of a minimum measurable length scale. In August 2016, I started my PhD at the University of Maryland, College Park, and in January 2018, I joined Prof. Buonanno’s group at the AEI.
