Research interests:

 The physics of collisionless shocks
 Large-scale structure
 Black holes
 Stellar evolution
 Structure of the Milky-Way
 Broadband astronomy
 Neutrino astronomy
 Hydrodynamic and MHD modeling



Some recent highlights:

    Large-scale spiral flows identified in deprojected galaxy clusters
    Virial shocks detected via SZ, coincident with gamma-rays
    Virial shocks detected! (around Coma and stacked LAT clusters)
    Fermi bubbles identified: outgoing strong shocks with X-ray shells and inward CR diffusion

    Galaxy cluster mystery: are the spiral flow and the linear entropy profile related?

    Flow around an axisymmetric object: analytic hydrodynamic and magnetization approximations

    Self-similar solution found: directed ultra-relativistic blast wave

    Missing asymptotic Kerr quasinormal mode branch discovered



Sample topics:



The largest objects - galaxy clusters


Black holes - in astrophysics and as clues to quantum gravity
