Research Interests
My research focuses on the physics of FR I radio galaxies, particle acceleration and the production of ultra-high energy cosmic rays. Current research topics include energetics, mass entrainment and particle acceleration associated with the jets of the nearest radio galaxy Centaurus A. I am also carrying out studies of the energetics, turbulent state, particle content and particle (re)acceleration in the giant lobes of this object.
