I am a theoretical astrophysicist primarily interested in the late stages of stellar evolution. The death of a star is an energetic and explosive event from which compact objects such as white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes emerge. As a theorist, I blend data, numerical computations and pen-and-paper theory to advance knowledge in stellar astrophysics.
