We develop research and tools within a number of specialities.
1. Since our background is the hard-core Numerical Relativity problem, we work on the study of accretion of matter onto black holes and black hole astrophysics. This includes the use of machine learning methods we have applied to the solution of inverse problems related to Gravitational Wave signals and Black Hole Shadows.
2. These problems have lead us to develop codes and research on Hydrodynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics and Hydrodynamics coupled to the radiation field in full 3D.
3. With our tools, we have studied other relativistic astrophysical systems, including the simulation of jets emitted from progenitors as GRBs fully coupled to radiation.
4. Some of our tools are now being applied not only to Relativistic Astrophysics, but also to Solar Physics. This includes space weather and Solar Seismology.
5. Within the group we have started to construct tools with applications to complex fluid dynamics at laboratory scale, which involves multiphase and multicomponent fluids.
6. I am still working on the subject of my Ph D thesis: the ultralight bosonic dark matter model. This model has been warmed up by the interest of worldwide groups studying the idea. Nowadays we are working on the local dynamics of structures by numerically solving the Gross-Pitaevskii-Poisson system of equations in full 3D.
7. Las but not least, my task during the early 2000s within the community of numerical relativity was focused on Boson Stars. With the observations of the EHT related to the shadow of the supermassive black hole at M87, these objects have also revived due to the possibility of competing with black holes as supermassive black hole candidates. I am still have the tools I developed back then (see the papers list to see some applications) and if a student or a postdoc would like to use them, we could add momentum to push research on this direction too.
For a better idea of our contribution on each of these subjects, look at the publications lists shown below.
