Professor of Astrophysics
I am a theoretical astrophysicist. I conduct research
by applying physical laws to understand astronomical phenomena.
My primary research interest is on those
objects that emit high-energy photons, including black holes
of different scales, neutron stars of different species, and
the intense "jets" they launch. In particular, in recent years I
have been spending most of my time to understand the physics behind
"Gamma-ray bursts" (GRBs), intense bursts of gamma-rays
coming from the deep space.
Here are my:
