I have been working on the Event Horizon Telescope project that aims to take the first picture of the black holes --- the most extreme objects in the universe predicted by the Einstein's General Relativity.

I primarily study supermassive black holes and surrounding magnetized plasma --- sites of the most energetic cosmic phenomena --- through imaging at ultra-high resolutions with very long baseline interferometry (VLBI). Please visit my website for an overview of my research, CV, publications & presentations.
