Black Hole Physics

I am a member of the gravity team in CENTRA/IST and we are 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. I am the Chair of the european GWverse COST Action, involving over 30 countries and 300 scientists, whose goal is to explore gravitational-wave physics as a tool to inform us on fundamental issues related to black holes. Check out the team’s webpage and the GWverse COST Action.
