Research Interests

My main research interests include combinations of the following topics: 1) multimessenger and time-domain high-energy astrophysics 2) polarimetric studies of high-energy astrophysical sources and 3) advanced machine learning techniques for data analysis and/or data reconstruction.

Involvement current and future space-based missions:

Currently running and selected:

  • Fermi (High-energy gamma-ray monitor)
  • IXPE (Soft X-ray imager and polarimeter)
  • COSI (Medium-energy gamma-ray imager and spectrometer)
  • CALET (Cosmic rays and gamma-ray monitor)

Future concepts:

  • AMEGO-X (Medium-energy gamma-ray -- NASA MIDEX)
  • AXIS  (X-ray imager -- NASA Probe)
  • GOSoX (X-ray polarimeter -- NASA Pioneer)
