Principal Interests:

Cosmology — cosmological dark age and reionization, dark energy, estimation of cosmological parameters.  Supermassive black holes — accretion disk geometries, jets, the structure of active galactic nuclei.  Star formation — structure and gas dynamics in close proximity to high-mass young stars.  Astronomical masers.  Interferometry.  Signal processing.  High Performance Computing.  Massively parallel computing (GPGPU).
