  • MASt in Mathematics, DAMTP, University of Cambridge (2017)
  • B.S. Physics, American University of Beirut (2015)

  • Research Interests

    My research interests revolve around the mathematical theory of black holes in General Relativity. I am specifically interested in understanding the scattering theory of the Einstein equations. My research is rooted in the areas of partial differential equations and differential geometry.
