  • CURRENT RESEARCH

    My research interests are primarily in gravitational wave astrophysics and data analysis, but I'm also interested in various aspects of cosmology, binary star evolution, gravitational dynamics in exoplanetary systems, and Earth's climate.

    Here are a few things that I am currently working on:

    1. Considering what information about the structure of the galaxy is embedded in the confusion background of low frequency G-waves (with Taylor and Benacquista).

    2. Considering the self-gravity influence on gravitational wave emission from isolated magnetars (with Purdue).

    3. Development of gravitational wave analysis techniques for detecting eccentric binary systems (with Hellings).

    4. Simulation of Roche Lobe overflow in compact (gravitational wave emitting) binary systems (with Addison and Breivik).
