Daniel studies the interface of general relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology, focusing on topics ranging from nearby black holes to distant supernovae, and from dark matter to the most massive superclusters of galaxies. He is currently exploring what we will learn about the universe from gravitational wave detectors. In particular, he is studying binary compact objects composed of black holes or neutron stars as powerful electromagnetic and gravitational-wave sources.
