I am an Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. 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 ultra-dense, 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
