I'm an Associate Research Scientist at Center for Computational Astrophysics, Flatiron Institute in NYC. I investigate how relativistic magnetospheres of compact objects produce non-thermal electromagnetic radiation. Significant part of the work is devoted to building new numerical methods to simulate extreme plasmas conditions near black holes and neutron stars. Click on the Research tab to learn more about my pulsar research. I'm also working on constructing quantitative models of boundary layers accretion disks around neutron stars and white dwarfs. Recently, I've became interested in understanding progenitors and emission mechanisms of  Fast Radio Bursts.
