I am a computational and theoretical astrophysicist interested in the physics of compact objects, such as neutron stars and black holes.

As the John A. Wheeler postdoctoral fellow at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, the Princeton Gravity Initiative and as a member of the Institute for Advanced Study, I perform high-performance simulations of neutron star mergers to understand the fundamental physics of the intersection of gravitational, nuclear and plasma astrophysics.

I am also a Visiting Associate in Theoretical Astrophysics at the California Institute of Technology.

Before moving to Princeton, I was a predoctoral fellow at the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the Flatiron Institute in New York and a graduate student at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
