Black Hole Physics

I am a member of the gravity team in CENTRA/IST, a Villum Investigator and DNRF Chair at the Niels Bohr Institute and a IST Distinguished Professor at Técnico. My group is doing exciting things: trying to understand the content of Einstein field equations from gravitational-wave data; dissecting the physics of black holes and their dynamics in generic spacetimes; trying to discriminate between different gravity theories using gravitational waves…and in general doing General Relativity and black hole physics. Check out the team’s webpage and the Niels Bohr International Academy.
