Position: Junior Research Fellow (2024-2025)
My research focuses on finding regular solutions of compact objects within modified theories of gravity, and identifying new features in their shadows that might allow us to identify them. Currently, I am interested in analyzing the imprints of modified theories on various observational aspects, such as gravitational waves or high-energy photons coming from a gamma-ray burst.
