I have been working on the Event Horizon Telescope project that aims to take the first picture of black holes — the most extreme objects in the universe predicted by 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.
