Running around, gravity, football, rock music, some more gravity. Astrophysics when I want to remember things are real, mountains when I want to see things are beautiful.

Astro-modeler, pathways creator, black-hole spinner. Between exploring nature and scribing poems, looks at physics during the day and ecology during the night. In his free-fall time, enjoys being thrown on a Judo mat.

PhD student. [email protected]
Post-Newtonian wizard, python sorcerer, gig-goer. When not thinking about astrophysics, can be found noodling on a guitar, on a (very) long run, or with the head buried in a book. Or wishing there was a guitar around.

Machine learner, rider of (gravitational) waves, fencing fanatic, binge-watcher extraordinaire. Fan of trying new things and exploring new places.

Data analyzer, GR tester, music addicted, guitar player (or at least she tries), nature lover, manga reader. Intrigued by all questions we cannot answer and that’s where her passion for astrophysics and black holes comes from.
