Research Interests

My research is mainly focused on the creation of elements. I investigate astrophysical scenarios under which, certain elements can be created. My goal is to identify key nuclear reactions affecting the creation of elements. My Ph.D. work focuses on the first r-process peak, where we investigate the possible scenarios under which, elements with atomic number Z=30 - 38, can be created in the aftermath of neutron star mergers. I am experienced in Hauser-Feshbach and nuclear network calculations, data analysis and visualization. I am also interested in research on unsupervised machine learning and enjoy Arduino programming.
