Research Interests

My current research interests include:
- Strong-gravity tests with neutron stars/black holes;
- Neutron star astrophysics, including equation of state constraints.;
- Neutron stars in modified theories of gravity;
- Black hole solutions, and their stability, in modified theories of gravity;
- Stellar and black hole perturbation theories and emission of gravitational waves;


Here are some notes (technical or semi-technical) related with my studies.
