research

My research focuses on understanding the physical processes and observational signatures related to the extreme death of stars, and how these processes influence, and are influenced by their surrounding environment.

I am particularly interested in:

  • supernovae,
  • the diffuse and compact remnants of supernovae,
  • the tidal disruption of a stars that wander to close to a supermassive black hole and,
  • particle acceleration in astrophysical objects.
