My main research interest is strong gravity, which is an extremely diversified subject, embracing areas as diverse as astrophysics, gravitation and particle physics. I am interested in various questions related to these subjects and especially in problems at the interface between them.
My research is focused on black-hole and neutron-star physics, in particular tests of gravity, gravitational-wave astrophysics, and investigations of dark-matter candidates based on the dynamics of compact objects. I am also interested in the foundations of General Relativity.
