Research Interests

The main focus of my research is in theoretical high-energy astrophysics to investigate the physical mechanism of black holes: accretion disks and relativistic physics in the vicinity of black holes as well as their large-scale influence on hot intracluster plasma and cosmic feedback from supermassive black holes.

Metallicity gradients in high redshift galaxies via multi-band, near-infrared integral field spectroscopy

Jan 10, 2020

Galaxies at the ‘cosmic noon’ are often characterised by the absence of strong radial gradients in the spatial distribution of metals, consistent with strong feedback mechanisms in place, but is this always reflecting a real spatial homogeneity ? New insights from the KLEVER Survey.
