My research mainly concerns the ATLAS experiment at the CERN, near Geneva. ATLAS is a detector used to analyze the results of the collisions produced by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), by far the most powerful particle accelerator ever built. We are just at the beginning of the ATLAS experiment. This marks one of the most exciting times in the history of fundamental physics. For the first time, the LHC lets us attain the tera-electron-volt energy scale, where we expect to encounter new fundamental physics, such as the creation of dark matter in the laboratory, the discovery of new spatial dimensions and supersymmetry. We have already discovered the Higgs boson, a central particle in the model of particle physics, since it apparently gives mass to other particles.

I am an expert in the study of big black holes – those that lie at the centres of massive galaxies. I use a combination of X-ray (e.g. Chandra, XMM-Newton, Rosat), radio (e.g. JVLA, GMRT, ATCA) and optical observations (e.g. HST, VLT) for my work. The ultimate goal of my research is to provide a detailed view on the role black hole feedback plays in the formation and evolution of galaxies, from heating to metal entrainment, as well as black hole growth. Other topics I work on include observational signatures of radio halos in cluster mergers, hyper-luminours infrared galaxies, numerical simulations of jets, and compact objects in general.
