Pedro Espino - Visiting Scholar - Postdoc
Office: 320 Whitmore Laboratory
Address: 320 Whitmore
I am an N3AS postdoctoral fellow, and visiting scholar at Penn State. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Arizona in 2021, with Vasileios Paschalidis, where I worked on aspects of binary neutron star (BNS) merger remnants. My work is broadly focused on understanding BNS mergers with the use of numerical relativity. My current research interests include deconfinement phase transitions in compact stars, understanding the conditions for nucleosynthesis in BNS mergers, and understanding the role of strong magnetic fields in BNS merger ejecta.
