Research Interests

My research seeks to understand how gravity works in high-energy scenarios like the beginning of the universe and the vicinity of supermassive black holes. For that purpose, i currently work on three research lines. the analysis of the astrophysical data provided by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), the dynamics and stability of neutron stars in asymptotically anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetimes, and the viability and implications of Lorentz symmetry violations in gravity.
