    I am a Lyman Spitzer Jr. fellow at Princeton University. I'm working on high energy astrophysics including: gravitational waves from compact binary mergers, electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational-wave events, the origin of elements, and gamma-ray bursts.

    I recieved a PhD in Physics from Kyoto University in 2014 under the surpervision of Prof. Takashi Nakamura and Prof. Masaru Shibata, with a thesis focused on a numerical relativity simulation of binary neutron star mergers and their multi-messenger signatures. I was working at Hebrew University of Jerusalem from 2014 to 2016 at Flatiron Institute in 2017 as a post-Doc researcher.
