Research


I study extreme cosmic explosions related to the formation and evolution of black holes. In particular, I am interested in multimessenger astrophysics, which aims to combine multiple cosmic messengers--gravitational waves, neutrinos, gamma-rays, etc., to learn more about astrophysical events.

I am a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, discovering gravitational waves from colliding black holes since 2015. I am also a member of the IceCube-Gen2 Collaboration, which is developing the next generation of neutrino observatories to be located deep within the ice of Antarctica. I also work on the biological applications of optics to better understand neurological diseases.
