Research Interests

My research focuses on multi-messenger time-domain astronomy (with special emphasis on relativistic transients) and gravitational wave physics. The largest chunk of my research is currently funded by the National Science Foundation. I am also PI of several guest investigator programs (mostly on Swift and Chandra) funded by NASA. For more info please visit my professional website.

Research Group and Collaborators

Here at TTU I am part of the Astrophysics group.

On my professional website you can find a list of my (past and current) students and post-docs, together with a (likely incomplete!) list of long-term collaborators.


Below the list of courses I have taught so far at TTU. I am usually very hard to reach 2 hours before class starts, since I am getting ready for it. Class material and information for all the courses I teach is available to TTU students on Blackboard.
