Welcome to my website! My name is Felipe and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS). It is important to mention that, even though my "official" last name is Garrido, I have been using my second surname, Goicovic (from my mother's side) for academic propuses. Yes, in Chile we have 2 surnames.

I finished my doctoral studies in Astrophysics with a double degree from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) and University of Heidelberg. Since September of 2017, I am a postdoc at the Theoretical Astrophysics group (TAP), led by Dr. Volker Springel at HITS.

My main research interest is the numerical modelling of black holes at different scales, which includes the formation and dynamics of accretion discs, the production of energy, AGN feedback, as well as the formation and evolution of binaries with their associated observational signatures.

Some of my collaborators include Dr. Jorge Cuadra (PUC, Chile), Dr. Alberto Sesana, Dr. Federico Stasyszyn (IATE, Argentina), Dr. Pau Amaro-Seoane (CSIC-IEEC, Spain) and Cristián Maureira-Fredes (AEI, Germany).
