My field of research is high-energy astrophysics. The fundamental open questions that motivate my work are that of the origins of high-energy cosmic rays and the nature of the physical processes dissipating energy in extreme astrophysical environments such as active galactic nuclei, gamma ray bursts or pulsar wind nebulae. More specifically, I investigate the multi-scale physics of shocks, turbulence and particle acceleration possibly at play in these environments using theoretical modelling and different numerical frameworks, including particle-in-cell and magnetohydrodynamic simulations.
I am excited to join a group of scientists from such diverse backgrounds and I am particularly looking forward to working alongside researchers in the fields of health and biology for the first time!
I am also eager to improve my Japanese, よかったら、日本語で声を掛けてください！
