I am an assistant professor in Astrophysics at Trinity College Dublin. Prior to that, I held independent research fellowships from the Royal Astronomical Society (at University of St Andrews, UK) and from the Swiss National Science Foundation (at Geneva Observatory).
Solar-like stars (main sequence and pre-main sequence) & low-mass stars: magnetised coronal winds, rotating outflows, structure of the coronal magnetic field, angular momentum loss, magnetic interaction between planets and the host star, accretion disks.
Exoplanetary Magnetic Fields
Formation of bow shocks due to magnetic interaction between planets and the host star. Radio emission through electron-cyclotron maser instability.
Cool supergiant stars: models of winds driven by Alfven waves, wind heating by dissipation of Alfven waves, charged dust-wave interaction.
Magnetohydrodynamics Numerical Simulations
Three-dimensional simulations, time-dependent effects, adaptive mesh refinement.
