Research Interests

Cosmology: dark matter, neutrinos, dark energy

massively parallel high performance simulations

Pulsar VLBI

cosmic tides

black hole physics: entropy, information loss


My research interest is theoretical astrophysics. I study systems where basic physical effects can be isolated from astronomical complexites. Current projects include the non-linear dynamics of the cosmic neutrino background, 21cm intensity mapping, pulsar VLBI scintillometry.
