Research summary

My research interests primarily lie in the observation of active galactic nuclei (AGN) and galaxy clusters at X-ray wavelengths, especially with regard to understanding the evolution of clusters and their constituent galaxies, and the processes driving this. I am particularly curious about processes which impact the intracluster medium (ICM), and how the thermodynamic and physical properties of the ICM evolve with cosmic time, improving constraints on cosmological models and theories of large scale structure formation.
