My work is oriented towards the observational tests of general relativity in its strong regime. My main topics of research are: (1) Development of a general relativistic ray-tracing code, GYOTO; (2) Studying general relativistic effects in the vicinity of Sgr A*; (3) Studying the flaring behaviour of Sgr A*; (4) Alternative objects to black holes: ray-tracing computation in the vicinity of non black hole objects; (5) Studying variable phenomena in X-ray binaries (QPOs) by developing simulations of observations
