Research Interests

I started graduate school in the Department of Astronomy at Columbia University in 2020. I’m broadly interested in both observational and theoretical astrophysics.  My research has been focusing on the observation of supermassive black hole binary candidates as quasars with multi-wavelength surveys, such as SwiftCRTSGALEX and LSSTI’m also interested in their gravitational wave detection aspects in PTA and LISA. Recently, I have shifted my focus to theoretical stellar physics on massive stars. For this I'm using a computational stellar modeling tool, MESA. 

Research Topics

Active galaxies (AGN), gravitational waves, high energy astrophysics and computational stellar physics
