I am interested in astronomy and astrophysics more broadly. My main focus now lies in the study of compact objects like Neutron Stars and Black Holes. In particular I am interested in simulating these objects using General-Relativistic Hydrodanymic codes such as the Einstein Toolkit.
Currently, during my Master's thesis, I am looking into Neutron Stars with (scalar field) Dark Matter cores with the goal of simulating a NS-NS merger and extracting the Gravitational Wave signal. Eventually, the simulated Gravitational Waves signal can be compared to observations and this can be used to constrain the possible Dark Matter content of Neutron Stars.
