This web site describes work related to some of the biggest explosions throughout the Universe
- short lasting blasts that release massive amounts of energy. These can be gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) or the gravitational wave (GW) emissions from supernovae or merging binary systems of neutron stars and black holes.
A lot of my work uses statistical methods to probe large data sets of cosmological transient events - the goal is to determine global properties such as the event rates or the form of the luminosity function. I also estimate the expected rates and detection prospects for GW/GRB coincident events. Some of my methods can be used to seperate out different populations of events that exist within the same data set - this is another interest.
