Astrophysics, Neutron Stars, Gravitational Waves,
Pulsar Timing, Statistical Inference

Currently, I pursue a Ph.D. degree at Monash University and work with the LIGO collaboration and the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array collaboration. My primary supervisor is Prof. Eric Thrane, and my Associate Supervisor is Dr. Xingjiang Zhu. Most of my work is focused on data analysis for pulsar timing and ground-based interferometers. I am working on the all-sky all-frequency model-independent radiometer search for persistent gravitational waves. The sources of persistent gravitational waves include externally or internally deformed neutron stars. I also work on model selection for spin noise from rotational irregularities of radio pulsars. This noise limits our sensitivity to nanohertz gravitational waves and provides means to study neutron star interiors. I also work with Dr. Daniel Reardon and Dr. Ryan Shannon at the Swinburne University of Technology on characterizing noise sources in the Second Data Release of the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array. In 2015 I graduated with a Specialist Degree from the Faculty of Physics of Lomonosov Moscow State University, where I worked on calibration of space-based gamma-ray burst detectors.
