ABOUT ME

I am a high energy astrophysicist. I joined the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics at the New York University and the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the Flatiron Institute in January, 2019.

I am currently investigating the origin of the ultra-high-energy cosmic-ray dipole anisotropy, the multi-messenger signatures of high energy cosmic accelerators and the role of cosmic-rays on the evolution of life.

I love teaching and I have taught students in both professional (applied physics) and research (fundamental physics) masters.
