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.
