3. Research Interests

Our group will focus on fundamental aspects of gravitational physics, which is basically based on the Einstein’s general relativity. In particular, we will look for physical solutions such as black holes, expanding universes (associated with dark energy), and inflationary universes within the context of the leading gravity theories/models such as f(R), massive gravity, DBI, Galileon, Gauss-Bonnet, etc. Additionally, we will investigate basic features of the obtained solutions such as their stability, thermodynamic properties, or the following constraints required to be consistent with observational data.
