Short Bio

My research focuses on fundamental aspects of the gravitational interaction and quantum aspects of the gravitational collapse and black hole formation and evolution. I am also interested in cosmology and alternative theories of gravity to describe the quantum state of the Universe, Dark Energy, the bounce and Dark Matter phenomenology. Some approaches to these issues are the horizon quantum mechanics and generalised uncertainty principles, the bootstrapped Newtonian gravity, coherent quantum states and the Wheeler-DeWitt equation to describe solutions of the Einstein equations, the minimal geometric deformations to generate new self-gravitating configurations.
