I am a member of the American Astronomical Society and the American Physical Society. I maintain collaborations with the Numerical Relativity group at the Department of Physics, Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, and the Theoretical Astrophysics group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, West Virginia University in Morgantown. Additionally, I am actively involved in the Einstein Toolkit project, an open-source, free framework for studying relativistic astrophysics problems using computer simulations.

I have a strong background in mathematics-oriented courses, which I believe is essential for a profound understanding of natural science concepts and for building a solid foundation, both crucial for successful scientific research or technical professions outside academia. My primary focus is on theoretical aspects of science, aligning with my personal attitude towards developing scientific reasoning and gaining knowledge.

Apart from academia, my hobby is long-distance running. However, the term 'long-distance' no longer applies since I became a devoted father in 2018.
