Personal profile

Research overview

My research involves the multi-wavelength -- ultraviolet, optical and infrared -- study of accreting compact objects, such as white dwarfs, neutron stars and stellar and super-massive black holes. I am currently the PI of a Key Project at the Las Cumbres Observatory to perform reverberation mapping experiments of Active Galactic Nuclei. This project employs a world-wide network of telescopes to observe, throughout the optical part of the spectrum, variability of the material plunging into the supermassive black hole. Visit the Key Project's website for more detailed information! I'm also interested in transient astronomy and instrumentation, being part of the science team behind OPTICam.
