Biography

I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics. My main research interests involve the study of sources of gravitational waves such as Black Holes and Cosmic Strings, from both numerical and analytical perspectives. I am also interested in other aspects of General Relativity and of computational science.
