My research interests lie in compact objects of different types, how to model them analytically, numerically, and how to extract quantitative signals that can be observed. Currently in my Master’s project I am investigating, together with collaborators, neutron stars with an added classical macroscopic scalar field, representing a type of ultralight bosonic dark matter. Apart from the stability and mass-radius-relations of these objects, I study their tidal deformability and use these properties to constrain the dark matter particle mass and self-interaction strength. Other research interests of mine include the nuclear matter equation of state and how to constrain it using numerical studies; the mathematical nature of gauge theories such as the standard model and general relativity and how it can be used to deepen our knowledge in current theories. I am also open to beyond standard model physics and modified gravity, as well as more philosophical fundamental discussions about nature and our current understanding of it.
