About me:

I am a theoretical astrophysics PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Brynmor Haskell. My broad research interests are:

  • Gravitational waves
  • Neutron stars
  • Numerical Astrophysics
  • Data analysis

Previously I have worked on data analysis to measure the Hubble constant using gravitational waves and galaxy catalogs. At present, I study magnetic field models, gravitational-wave mountains, and radio-emission from pulsars.
