Research Interests

My recent research interests have been on the implications of scalar-tensor theories of gravity and their description in the Einstein frame. First, how these fields can be considered as possible sources for producing exact black-hole solutions, and the causal structure inferred by these solutions.

I have also developed an interest in Shape Dynamics, and I have been recently developing and characterizing a class of exact solutions of the theory, which describes a time-dependent black hole in a cosmological environment. There are many new directions to pursue following this novel initial result.
