    I am interested in a wide variety of theoretical astrophysics, including but not limited to, general relativity, gravitational wave sources, black hole accretion, X-ray polarization, planetary dynamics, gravitational microlensing, and dark matter annihilation models.

    Research Projects

    • Modeling X-ray spectra from black hole accretion flows
    • Electromagnetic counterparts to binary black hole mergers
    • Dark matter annihilation around black holes
    • Resonant dynamics of planetary systems and analogs
