About My Research
I'm an observer interested in the physics of clusters and group of galaxies as inferred mainly by X-ray observations but also from observations at other wavelengths like optical and radio. I work in particular on AGN feedback in cool cores, metal abundances in the intra-cluster and intra-group medium and the characterization of the dynamical state of a system.
Galaxy clusters are also important cosmological tools, provided we are able to measure their masses. This measure can be done in many different ways like for example using their X-ray emission, gravitational lensing or the dynamics of their member galaxies.
A selection of the latest projects I'm currently working on:
- Analysis of the Chandra observation of A 1703
- Analysis of the XMM follow up of SL2S groups
- Paper on the outskirts of RXJ1159 accepted by ApJ (see astroph)
- NuSTAR observation of A2163 awarded in AO1 (115 ks, PI Wik)
- Paper on the NuSTAR Coma center observation ApJ accepted (see astroph)
