Most back hole and neutron star progenitors are found in triples or higher multiplicity systems. Here, we present a new triple stellar evolution code, ${\tt TSE}$, which simultaneously takes into account the physics of the stars and their gravitational interaction. ${\tt TSE}$ is used to simulate the evolution of massive stellar triples in the galactic field from the zero-age-main-sequence until they form compact objects. To this end, we implement initial conditions that incorporate the… 

Binary black hole mergers from merged stars in the Galactic field

The majority of massive stars are found in close binaries which: (i) are prone to merge and (ii) are accompanied by another distant tertiary star (triples). Here, we study the evolution of the

Gravitational background from dynamical binaries and detectability with 2G detectors

We study the impact of young clusters on the gravitational wave background from compact binary coalescence. We simulate a catalog of sources from population I/II isolated binary stars and stars born



Stellar Winds from Massive Stars

We review the various techniques through which wind properties of massive stars — O stars, AB supergiants, Luminous Blue Variables (LBVs), Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars and cool supergiants — are derived.
