Currently, I am a NHFP/Einstein Fellow at the California Institute of Technology. I am interested in studying the phenomena associated with the most extreme objects in the Universe: black holes and neutron stars. I have studied black holes across the mass scales (supermassive to stellar mass) prior to pivoting towards investigating the matter that exists in an ultradense, cold state within neutron stars.

"The strongest affection and utmost zeal should, I think, promote the studies concerned with the most beautiful objects. This is the discipline that deals with the universe's divine revolutions, the stars' motions, sizes, distances, risings and settings . . . for what is more beautiful than heaven?" - Nicolaus Copernicus
