My research interests are focused on black hole physics, quantum field theory and their interplay. During my studies I deepened my knowledge about black hole quasinormal modes, in particular I worked with the WKB approximation to obtain insights about rotating black holes. Right now I am working on the superfluid helium experiment, designed to study these particular and interesting modes in analogue gravity systems.
