My research demonstrates that neutron star observations can be used to understand how neutrons and protons interact. Also, I have shown that nuclear physics is critical for describing neutron star observations and many astrophysical processes including core-collapse supernovae, X-ray bursts and giant flares in magnetars. Recently, I determined how neutron star radius observations improve our knowledge of nuclear three-body forces, the neutron skin thickness of lead, and the nuclear symmetry energy.
