Prashant Kocherlakota

Black Hole Initiative
Astronomy, Physics


Prashant has a Ph.D. in physics from TIFR Mumbai. He is interested in experimental tests of gravity and of the equivalence principle involving compact objects, with a recent focus on facilitating such tests using black hole imaging measurements. Older interests include gravitomagnetism and its appearance in pulsar-black hole systems, the mode stability of exotic compact objects, gravitational collapse and the cosmic censorship conjecture, and solution-generating techniques like the Newman-Janis trick.
