Research Interests

Current research interests include: 1) testing the universality of accretion disk physics across all mass and size scales, 2) development and application of advanced timing analysis methods to astronomical timeseries, 3) multi-wavelength data-analysis and interpretation of compact interacting binaries, 4) Machine learning algorithms applied to large astronomical datasets, in particular in the context of the BlackGEM project.
