My research is centered around the numerical simulation of systems governed by the laws of General Relativity, ranging from black holes to the large-scale universe, and around the computational tools required. In particular, I develop high-level debugging and visualization tools within the Alpaca project and have an interest in numerical methods for the extraction of physical observables from the simulations (horizon analysis, wave extraction).
