The MIT Kavli Institute paves the way for new developments in space- & ground-based astrophysics. Our faculty, research staff, and students develop technology & instrumentation with a focus on an engineering and technical core.
Researchers at The Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research explore extreme and unusual phenomena found beyond the Earth including extrasolar planets, black holes, neutron stars, and distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
I am a first year PhD student working at the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research with Professor Scott Hughes. I am a recent graduate of Caltech (undergrad).
My current project involves modeling the gravitational wave signal from black holes in the extreme mass ratio limit. My general research interests include General Relativity, compact objects, and gravitational wave astronomy.
