I’m interested in orbital dynamics and the dynamical evolution of systems at various scales, such as planetary systems and galaxies. These systems can be studied through a model called the gravitational N—body problem. I'm interested in building numerical tools to solve the N-body problem. I’m also interested in regular and chaotic dynamics more broadly. I received my PhD in Physics from MIT in 2018.
