My current research interest is in the origins and evolution of massive black holes and their astrophysical significance, with an emphasis on binary evolution. In particular, I explore how black holes grow and merge in astrophysical environments and how observational probes can be used to constrain these processes. I also investigate the entangled problem, i.e., how the growths of black holes may affect star and galaxy formation.
