My research is on Gravitational Waves. I use Effective Field Theory (Non-Relativistic General Relativity) to investigate the dynamics of binary systems of compact bodies. I have special interest for the spin effects in these systems, both conservative and dissipative. I'm also interested in EMRI's. The work I've been doing is important to provide ingredients necessary to write accurate waveforms for the GW emitted during the binary's inspiral stage.
