I am a theoretical high-energy astrophysicist, particularly interested in gamma-ray bursts. The relativistic jet launched by the central engine and its structure play a prime role in these extremely energetic phenomena. I wish to provide my knowledge of gamma-ray burst jets to help explore relativistic jets in all their astrophysical manifestations.

My research interest includes accretion onto compact objects (vacuum black hole, hairy black hole or neutrons star), numerical evolution of magnetized torus and jet launching around a black hole, relativistic jets, black hole shadows and multi-wavelength emission by non-thermal particles.

I am a PhD student at Institute for Theoretical Physics, Goethe University Frankfurt. My research interests focus on extreme processes occurring around compact objects such as black holes, including accretion, relativistic jets and binary mergers. With experience of semi-analytically studying the launching process of relativistic jets in strong gravitational fields in stationary spacetime, I am trying to extend the jet equations to more general and dynamic spacetime.

I am a Ph.D. student at Goethe Universität in Frankfurt. My research interests include the numerical simulation of isolated and binary neutron star systems, with a focus on radiation transport in binary neutron star mergers and on the effect of neutrinos in the gravitational wave and electromagnetic signals emitted by these events.

I am a Ph.D. student at Goethe Universität in Frankfurt. I am interested in the numerical relativity simulations of compact objects: magnetized neutron star, binary neutron star system, core-collapse supernovae, and binary black hole and with a focus on the effects of neutrinos, EM fields, and QCD matter in the multi-messenger signals emitted by these high energy astrophysical phenomena. I am also a numerical simulation code developer to play a role in the implementation of dynamical spacetime, magneto-hydrodynamics as well as radiation hydrodynamics of neutrinos.
