Bio/Research

I am an associate professor at the University of British Columbia and a Canada Research Chair in Neutron Stars and Black Holes. My recent research has focussed on compact objects: white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes. These are the most extreme objects in the universe since the Big Bang. Astrophysicists think that they provide the power behind quasars and gamma-ray bursts, the brightest objects in the recent universe.
