  • Research
    My research in theoretical neutron star astrophysics focuses on the studies of structure, composition, and dynamics of neutron stars (mass, radii, moments of inertia, tidal deformability, nuclear pasta, cooling processes, gravitational wave emissions, etc.) through developing and employing the equation of state of neutron-star matter. My research in nuclear theory focuses on the understanding of isovector nuclear interaction through building and developing nuclear energy density functionals in the context of the Relativistic Mean-Field and Skyrme Hartree-Fock models, and through studies of the density dependence of the nuclear symmetry energy, neutron and weak charge distribution, as well as the neutron skin thickness of medium to heavy nuclei. My research publications can be found on my Google Scholar page or in my ADS private library.
