Research Interests

My current research interests include:

  • Strong-gravity tests with neutron stars/black holes
  • Stellar and black hole perturbation theories and emission of gravitational waves
  • 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


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

  1. Relativistic gravity, compact objects and strong-field gravity.
