High-Energy Astrophysics

Research group at Department of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics

About us

The research of our group includes the study of the hot gaseous atmospheres permeating massive galaxies and clusters of galaxies, accreting black holes, and enormous stellar explosions called gamma ray-bursts. These are some of the most exciting areas of today’s astrophysics, with a potential to also provide observational breakthroughs in fundamental physics.

For the study of the hot Universe and black hole activity, we mainly use X-ray imaging and spectroscopy, radio interferometry, as well as other novel multi-wavelength observations. The groups aims to demonstrate that critically important observations of the high-energy sky, in particular gamma-ray bursts, can also be performed by nano- and micro-satellites.
