I'm an astrophysicist and I work on interesting problems related to compact objects, strong magnetic fields, and relativistic outflows. In particular, I'm interested in understanding the physics of magnetized jets in gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), multi-messenger signals from binary neutron star mergers, and magnetic energy dissipation leading to flaring activity in magnetars.
Presently, I'm a postdoc at the George Washington University and the Open University of Israel (OUI), working with Prof. Jonathan Granot. Before this, I was a postdoc at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA), where I worked with Prof. Chris Thompson. I received my PhD in astrophysics from the University of British Columbia in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Jeremy Heyl.
My research interests include:
I am currently a member of the Fermi-GRB group and the enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission.
