Welcome to my webpage! I'm a 4th year math PhD student at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Professor Mihalis Dafermos, in the Cambridge Center for Analysis. I'm also Research Scholar at Trinity College.
I work on Mathematical General Relativity, but I am also interested in related areas, such as hyperbolic PDEs and Geometric Analysis.
You can reach me by email at rita.t.costa at dpmms.cam.ac.uk. You can also find me in D0.10 at the Center for Mathematical Sciences.
