Research Interests:
As Professor of Astrophysics (Chair) at Göteborg University, I am conducting research on a wide range of subjects: black holes, quasars, neutron stars, gamma ray bursts, gravitational radiation, quantum gravity, accretion discs. My research deals with the extreme conditions of curvature, compactness, density, temperature and strength of gravity typical for high energy astronomical objects. These conditions often reflect fundamental laws of Nature and cannot be even approached in laboratories on Earth.

Research Interests:
My research is in general relativity and I am interested in questions about spacetime singularities and cosmic censorship. The cosmic censorship conjecture was proposed by Roger Penrose in the sixties and the hypothesis is that spacetime singularities are always hidden within black holes and cannot be seen (i.e. there are no "naked singularities"). In my research I primarily work on global existence for solutions to Einstein's equations and in particular to the Einstein-Vlasov system where the matter is modelled by kinetic theory. A global existence theorem is the first step towards an understanding of cosmic censorship. I am also interested in kinetic equations in general (on a flat background spacetime) such as the Maxwell-Vlasov system, the Vlasov-Poisson system and the relativistic Boltzmann equation.

Research Interests:
My research interest is in relativistic astrophysics and mathematical physics. Currently, I am studying a variety of binary systems as sources for the space-based gravitational wave detector (LISA). In particular, I am looking at globular cluster populations of relativistic binaries, gravitationally lensed quasars, and supermassive black hole systems in the cores of galaxies. I also hope to begin studying isolated neutron stars as possible sources for ground based gravitational wave interferometers such as LIGO or Virgo. I am the chair of the Task Force on Galactic Binary Populations as part of Working Group 1 of the LISA International Science Team.

I am especially interested in the use of simulations to test mathematical conjectures and to explore those properties of solutions to Einstein's equations that might be amenable to mathematical analysis.

Research interests are mostly theoretical, on Einstein's general relativity and gravitational theories, including the problem of motion of bodies in general relativity, the implementation of high-order approximation methods in that theory, the problem of the generation of gravitational radiation by astrophysical sources, and the one of the analysis of gravitational waves when they are observed by current experiments. Has more recently been interested in the problem of dark matter in cosmology.

At present my interests lie at the interface between string theory and lower-energy physics, with a particular emphasis on how the discovery of D-branes may have observable consequences in experiments and in cosmology. To the extent that there is a theme to my research, it would be the use of effective field theory techniques throughout high-energy physics and other fields.

This is an especially exciting time for this kind of science; a flood of data and suprising observational results are revolutionizing cosmology, new experiments (from accelerators and elsewhere) are invigorating particle physics, and advances in string theory have brought it into closer contact with low-energy physics and gravitation.

I have a broad interest in computational astrophysics, particularly numerical simulations of novel hydrodynamic, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), and radiation MHD effects in astrophysics. Currently, my primary interest is in developing and utilizing codes to study black hole accretion and the feedback of black holes on their environments through jets. This research may be applicable to quasars, active galactic nuclei (AGN), X-ray binaries, core-collapse supernovas, and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), all of which contain jet-like features and are likely powered by accreting black holes.

My research so far has been related in various ways to the investigation of the underlying algebraic structures in supergravity and string theory. One point of entry into this topic is the analysis of gravitational theories close to a spacelike singularity (the "BKL-limit"), for which infinite-dimensional Kac-Moody algebras turn out to play an important role. More precisely, for many theories of interest, the dynamics in the vicinity of a spacelike singularity is controlled by hyperbolic Coxeter groups, corresponding to Weyl groups of hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebras. The BKL-limit therefore reveals a "hidden" arithmetic structure in theories coupled to gravity. Recently, I have investigated how this structure is modified when the spatial dimensions are described by compact manifolds of nontrivial topology. From another point of view, it is well known that similar arithmetic structures arise in string/M-theory in the form of discrete U-duality groups. Motivated by this, I am also studying the construction of arithmetic subgroups of Lie groups, and their relation with automorphic forms.

My research activities have recently been divided into two broad streams. The first stream is concerned with the physics of black holes in tidal environments. The second stream is concerned with the gravitational self-force. The context for this work is provided by the ongoing effort to measure gravitational waves using earth-based detectors (now operational) and space-based detectors (in development).

For the past decade I have done most of my research on sources of gravitational waves and their detection. My research group is engaged in the analysis of data from the British-German GEO 600 and American LIGO interferometric gravitational wave detectors, mainly concerned with the searches for coalescences of compact objects (i.e. neutron stars and black holes), transients from supernovae and stochastic background.

My research has always focused on the applications of Einstein's theory of general relativity in astrophysics. I began by studying the stability and pulsation of rotating stars, mainly in order to understand neutron stars, which can spin many hundreds of times per second. Pulsating stars emit gravitational radiation, so I got interested in the problem of gravitational wave emission, especially by stars in binary systems, which are studied by post-Newtonian methods. This led to an interest in using numerical relativity to simulate the orbiting and merging of black holes in binary systems. The development of sensitive gravitational wave detectors led me to study gravitational wave data analysis in depth. This has occupied the majority of my research time in the past two decades.
