Research Group

Multi-messenger astrophysics, high-energy time-domain astrophysics

Group Focus

We are interested in the field of multi-messenger and time-domain astrophysics with focus on high-energy gamma-ray transients and variable sources. In particular, we aim understanding the physical processes acting in AGN and the origin of astrophysical neutrinos. To achieve these goals, our group is using state-of-the-art theoretical models, broad-range of multiwavelength observations of active galactic nuclei, as well as observations collected by multimessenger facilities such as the IceCube neutrino Observatory and Antares/KM3Net among others.

My group is based at the University of Wuerzburg, at the Chiar for Astronomy. The team is actively involved in the Fermi-LAT Collaboration. The research group is primarily supported thanks to the ERC Starting grant awarded in 2020. I'm looking to enlarge the team with a PhD student and a PostDoc. The positions will soon be advertised in the project website.
