Dr. Fonseca works as a radio astronomer, with a specific focus of observing transient signals from neutron stars. In collaboration with colleagues around the globe, he uses these observations to discern fundamental aspects of physics in extreme environments. His specific area of research is radio-transient astronomy, with particular focus on radio pulsars and fast radio bursts.

Before WVU, he was proudly a member of the radio-astronomy group led by Dr. Victoria Kaspi as a postdoctoral researcher, and the group led by Dr. Ingrid Stairs during graduate studies.
