My research is centered around nature's most compact objects, black holes and neutron stars, in particular their observational appearance in the form of gravitational waves or electromagnetic emission. 

In my work I push the boundaries to provide explicit theoretical model predictions (gravitational waveforms, predicted radio images, polarization signatures, etc), as well as advance our ability to compare these theoretical predictions to cutting-edge observations taken by the Event Horizon Telescope. Through such comparisons, which typically require high-performance computing, I seek to advance our understanding of highly energetic astrophysical processes as well as refining our understanding of gravity, the nature of black holes and our universe as a whole. The first image of the black hole shadow in M87* is not the culmination but only the beginning of a new era of black hole astrophysics.
