Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN)

X-ray study of the AGN population in the Chandra Deep Field South. Study of AGN properties at x-ray and other frequencies - especially the radio 1.4GHz frequency. Study of the X-ray/radio correlation in star-forming galaxies.

Study of the non-thermal distribution of particles in AGN jets and in star-forming galaxies. Modeling of the broad-band (eV-keV-GeV-TeV) emission from AGN jets, and of the gamma-ray emission from starburst galaxies. Assessing the presence and energy density of cosmic rays (i.e., relativistic protons and electrons) in star-forming galaxies.
