Abstract: I will describe a time domain code aimed at performing evolutions of Extreme Mass Ratio Inspirals (EMRIs), i.e. a small compact object (BH or NS) spiraling into a super massive black hole due to the emission of gravitational waves. I will give some background to the physical problem and describe some of the design choices. I will finally demonstrate some of the capabilities and discuss the outlook for further developments.
