I study compact objects through numerical simulations. Compact objects are small, dense stellar remnants that if left on their own would be nearly invisible due to their small size In many cases, however, these dead stars reveal themselves through interactions with their environment - often times though interacting with a partner star in a binary system.

Research Areas:

  • Merger of two neutron stars
  • Neutron star black hole merger
  • double white dwarf merger
