Hello, and welcome to my website!

I am an assistant professor in the Physics Department at Villanova University and an expert in high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy and spectral variability of black holes. My research focuses on black holes and neutron stars in the Milky Way galaxy. As an observational astrophysicist, I use space- and ground-based telescopes (Chandra, NuSTAR, JVLA, Gemini) to study the behavior of these extreme gravitational objects.
