Biosketch: I am a postdoctoral researcher in gravitational-wave astrophysics, currently an Excellence Fellow at Radboud University. I obtained my PhD in physics from Cornell University in 2008, working with Prof. E. Flanagan, and was a Sherman Fairchild Prize Fellow in the TAPIR group at Caltech before moving to postdoctoral research positions at the University of Maryland and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam. My research interests include modeling sources of gravitational waves, studying the physics of neutron stars and black holes, dynamics in strong gravitational fields, and other topics in astrophysics and general relativity. 

You can read more about my research projects on my research page.

Here is the list of my publications on INSPIRES




You can also find a few lay summaries of some of my research projects in a Nature research highlight , a German newspaper (in German),  ARS Technica ,  APS Physics and New Scientist
