I am a theoretical astrophysicist studying specific signatures of Einstein's theory of general relativity and some of its extensions on astrophysical phenomena, both in the electromagnetic and gravitational spectra. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2021. Since then, I have been a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University's Gravity Initiative. At the Gravity Initiative, my research focuses on extracting fundamental physics properties from the photon rings of black holes and investigating specific aspects of turbulent dynamics within Einstein's field equations.
