I am an Einstein post-doctoral fellow at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBL). My research focuses on numerical simulations in general relativity. I study merging compact objects (black holes and neutron stars), and model the gravitational wave and electromagnetic signals (gamma-ray bursts, optical/infrared transients) that they emit, as well as their role in the production of heavy atoms such as gold and platinum. I also study the evolution of accretion disks, with a particular focus on the physics of disks around supermassive black holes.
