Research & Publications Teaching & Lecturing


I am a computational and theoretical astrophysicist. My work is at the interface of numerical relativity, nuclear/neutrino astrophysics, and gravitational-wave physics.

My current primary research interests are:

I'm deeply committed to open science and open-source scientific codes. I'm convinced that this is the way to reproducibility and progress in computational science. I'm involved in the open-source Einstein Toolkit, which provides simulation codes and tools for computational relativistic astrophysics. I run the website where I provide resources for the stellar collapse and neutron star merger communities.

I'm also committed to training the next-generation of theoretical and computational relativistic astrophysicists. I've had the honor to work with a number of highly successful young scientists:
