Research Fields:
My work deals mainly with numerical simulations and analytic calculations of various facets of the Interstellar Medium - supernovae and supernova remnants, winds, bubbles, shock waves, ULXs. I study and model the radio, X-ray and gamma-ray emission from these and other related objects.
I also work on the formation of the solar system, and specifically the issue of high 26Al and low 60Fe in the early solar system.
