At present, I am interested in magnetospheres of black holes, neutron stars and binary systems composed thereof, both from the analytical and numerical point of view. I perform MHD simulations of these systems in full general relativity. Such simulations are the only means to unravel one day the precise physical processes and mechanisms that power gamma ray bursts -- tremendously energetic astrophysical events numerously observed by astronomers.
