Black holes and neutron stars are some of the most fascinating objects in the universe. They are born in violent explosions that manifest as observable astrophysical transients.

To learn about the formation of these compact objects and the physics associated with them, we generate theoretical predictions for these transients and then compare them with astronomical observations. The complexity of the phenomena involved requires intensive numerical calculations on powerful supercomputers.

In this talk I will provide an overview of my research program focused on neutron star mergers and core-collapse supernovae. These events are bright sources of electromagnetic radiation, gravitational waves, and neutrinos. The information contained in these signals allows probing the formation of chemical elements, the equation of state of matter above nuclear densities, the behavior of matter under strong gravity and/or magnetic fields, as well as other astronomical questions such as the origin of gamma-ray bursts and the expansion rate of the universe.
