Rodrigo Fernandez is interested in theoretical astrophysics at the stellar scale. His research makes use of numerical simulations to gain insight into complex astrophysical systems. Currently, he works on the explosion mechanism of core-collapse supernovae, the X-ray emission from neutron stars, and the nuclear physics of compact object mergers.
