Bulent Kizilitan's research focuses on compact objects; mainly neutron stars, pulsars, supernova remnants and related phenomena. He is also interested in the evolution of white dwarfs, stellar and intermediate mass black holes; the formation, evolution and dynamics of globular clusters.
Bulent's research lies at the interface between observation, theory and simulation. He uses N-body simulations and multi-wavelength data to probe diverse aspects of compact object evolution and globular cluster dynamics. In addition, Bulent uses Bayesian statistical methods in conjunction with stellar population synthesis methods to constrain bulk properties of stellar populations.
