Ph.D. was a fruitful journey in which I published 13 papers in high-impact journals such as Nature and Science and 3 preprints. I built the data analysis foundation for nuclear multi-messenger astronomy and developed the state-of-the-art multi-messenger data analysis software NMMA (see here).

I have been an active member of the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA collaboration (LVKC), and a major contributor to two LVKC papers. In one of the papers, I was the PIC of 2 sessions involving 100+ LVKC members.


Besides my research, I have mentored 4 students - 1 Ph.D., 2 M.Sc., and 1 Bachelor.

Joining the LIGO Virgo collaboration opened the door to my data analysis path. While analyzing actual gravitational wave events data, I built an impactful model to probe the presence of beyond General Relativity polarization. Traditional methods require four to six gravitational wave detectors, while only three are on Earth. To overcome this constraint, I developed a model using an overlooked statistical property of the noise. The method became the sole contribution to the polarization test in a LIGO-Virgo-collaboration published paper.

I completed 2 bachelor theses related to compact stars. Despite having no prior programming knowledge, I self-taught FORTRAN within a year and built my projects upon it. This experience sparked my interest in astrophysics and equipped me with valuable self-learning skills. It served as a foundation for my academic and professional pursuits.

Continuing my path as a postdoctoral researcher in astrophysics, I actively seek new challenges, greater responsibilities, and increased exposure to propel my career to the next level.
