My general interests are in relativistic astrophysics, particularly gravitational waves.
The physical systems I study are primarily compact binaries and isolated neutron stars.
To study these systems, I use the techniques of numerical relativity, the post-Newtonian approximation, and black hole and stellar perturbation theory, in addition to other techniques to study neutron star matter.
