I am a research associate at the Department of Applied Math and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.
I obtained my PhD from the Department of Physics, Princeton University. My adviser was Frans Pretorius. My thesis: pdf.
My research centers around ``strong field gravity'', and includes: black hole perturbation theory (and the leading nonlinear dynamics of gravitational waves around black holes, for use in gravitational wave source modeling) and the dynamics of ``modified gravity'' theories (for use in tests of General Relativity and modeling the early universe). For my research I mostly use the tools of numerical relativity and perturbation theory.
