Welcome to my homepage
I am a senior Kavli research fellow at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology in Cambridge (KICC) and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge. I’ve been hunting for Gravitational Waves (GWs) since 2011, as a member of the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration, trying to figure out what Gravitational Waves can tell us about the nature of spacetime, gravity and matter at extreme conditions. And what better place to look for them than colliding black holes and neutron stars!
My research areas of interest are:
- Gravitational Waves
- Black Holes
- Modified Gravity
- Neutron Star physics
- Quantum Gravity
- Bayesian Inference
You can find more information about my research here.
Gravitational Waves research at Cambridge is growing fast. Our local LIGO group counts 8 members, while many more work on Numerical Relativity, Theory and Astrophysics. I am currently supervising
- two PhD students: T. Evstafyeva and T. Jain
- one MPhil student: T. Klinger
- two summer students: C. Roussos, A. Thavanesan
If you want to do a PhD on gravitational wave physics with me, please apply as an external candidate through the Graduate Admissions at DAMTP.
However, I am not planning to take more students for the 2021 admissions.
