David Khatami

Research Interests

  • high-energy astrophysics
  • supernovae/kilonovae
  • radiative transfer
  • radiation hydrodynamics
  • nuclear astrophysics


I am currently a fourth-year graduate student and NSF fellow in the astronomy department. I am working with Daniel Kasen on developing and testing theoretical models of energetic transients such as supernovae, kilonovae, compact object mergers, and tidal disruption events.
