My research is mainly in alternative theories of gravity and their
the strong-field regime. More specifically, I’m interested in
scalar-tensor theories, violations of local Lorentz invariance, and
superradiant instabilities driven by new fundamental fields. The main
goal is the development of precision tests of such theories that will
allow us to confront them with gravitational-wave observations. Those
require understanding black hole solutions, the process of black hole
formation through gravitational collapse, and eventually deriving
gravitational-wave signatures. Those tasks require a combination of
analytical and numerical techniques.
Here are links to my publications: from Spires, and from the ADS database.
I completed my PhD in mathematical physics in 2019 at the University of
Nottingham. During my graduate studies, I was supervised by Thomas
Sotiriou and Jorma Louko and my work covered various aspects of black
hole physics in alternative theories of gravity. I’ve been a postdoc at
the AEI since April 2019.
