I am a Senior Research Scientist working at the Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University.
My research is funded through a starting grant from the Swedish Research Council (VR) and is focused on studying supernovae and kilonovae, extremely bright events associated with the explosions of dying stars.
To unravel the nature of these explosions, I run sophisticated calculations and test different scenarios by comparing their predictions with supernova and kilonova observations.
