Research:

My research focuses on electromagnetic signatures of accreting supermassive binary black holes. I use supercomputers to perform simulations of these systems in order to make predictions about observational signatures we can exploit to help us discover them. The simulations I am currently working on are performed on large supercomputers such as NASA's Pleiades Supercomputer using a code called DISCO, which was originally created by Paul Duffell at NYU.
