In a broad sense, my research interests lie at the intersection of particle physics, gravity and cosmology, in particular, using cosmological observations as a probe of fundamental physics.

More specifically, my current research focuses are:

•    Scattering amplitudes – applying modern on-shell techniques to study the structure, and physics of proposed theories of gravity. In particular, constructing black hole solutions, exploring the double copy structure, and on-shell constructability of such theories.
•    Particle cosmology – exploring a diverse range topics in the early and late universe, e.g. early universe reheating, the cosmological constant problem, and quantum field theory in de Sitter space.
•    Strong gravity regime – as well as studying black hole solutions via the scattering amplitude approach, I am also interested in investigating the nature of compact objects in modified theories of gravity, via the traditional geometric construction of classical gravity.
