## Calculating the second-order self-force for a Teukolsky formalism

The first iteration of the second-order self-force calculation considered the problem in the Lorenz gauge. However, in the absence of a separable Lorenz gauge formalism for the astrophysical relevant scenario of Kerr spacetime, we are now pursuing a second-order calculation for the Teukolsky equation. In this talk I outline the numerical implementation to compute the second-order Weyl scalar.
