Research interests: 

I am fascinated by anything related to compact objects, especially neutron stars. Currently, I am using x-ray observations to study low-mass x-ray binary systems, particularly to constrain the neutron star's mass and radius and also to study the spectral evolution of these systems as they cool after energetic, outburst states.
