Biosketch: I am a postdoctoral researcher in gravitational-wave physics, currently a DeltaITP fellow at the University of Amsterdam. I obtained my PhD in physics from Cornell University in 2008 and have since held postdoctoral positions at Caltech (Sherman Fairchild Prize Fellowship), the University of Maryland, the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, and Radboud University Nijmegen (Excellence Fellowship).  

My research interests include modeling sources of gravitational waves, studying the physics of neutron stars and their equation of state, probing the nature of black holes, understanding dynamics in strong gravitational fields, among other topics. 

I am a topic leader for the Cost Actions GWverse and NewCompStar (past) and leading the GW focus group in the Dutch Nova III network. 

Here is the list of my publications on INSPIRES

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