Research summary

My research interests are in high energy astrophysics, and X-ray astronomy in particular. X-rays are produced by extremely hot (million+ degree) gas. Extreme environments that produce strong X-ray emission include gas falling into black holes, the centres of “active” galaxies, jets, outflows, and clusters of galaxies. I study these systems using images and spectra from space-based X-ray observatories including Chandra, XMM-Newton and Suzaku
