Research Interests

My work involves the detection of gravitational waves using the space-borne detector LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna). I am interested in using a Bayesian framework to estimate the parameters of astrophysical systems, in particular, black hole binaries. During my PhD, I will likely focus developing theoretical templates for extreme mass ratio inspirals; where the larger primary is maximally spinning (extreme) and the smaller secondary is on a trajectory mapped by the larger Kerr black holes spacetime geometry.
