My **research interests**:

- Black hole physics
- General relativity, numerical relativity and gravitational radiation
- Supergravity, string theories and the gauge/gravity duality
- Differential geometry
- Casimir effect and quantum field theory
- Cosmology and inflationary models

An exciting research area in which I have been involved recently is that of using the techniques of Numerical Relativity to more general setups, namely high energy physics models. Learn more about this area in our group's webpage. Besides some exciting physics, we make some cool movies!

Recent** talks**:

- Interacting rotating vacuum black holes in four and five dimensions (as *invited speaker* at 5th (1st Iberian) Workshop on Gravitational Aspects of Strings and Branes, February 2009, Gijon, Spain)

- Physical properties of the double Kerr solution (as *invited speaker* at Mathematical Relativity in Lisbon, June 2009)

- Minimal five dimensional supergravities and complex geometry (as *invited speaker* at XVIII International Fall Workshop on Geometry and Physics, September 2009, Benasque, Spain)
