Research Summary

My main research interests are time domain astronomy and observational high energy astrophysics. I am part of the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) and NuSTAR teams. In the past, I have worked on supernovae, X-ray binaries, and stars. For my PhD thesis, I explore the dynamic sky using ZTF, Keck, and many high energy missions (XMM-Newton, Swift, NuSTAR, Chandra, NICER, SRG/eROSITA), with a particular focus on tidal disruption events and stellar explosions with intensive end-of-life mass-loss.
