I am an astrophysicist at NASA/GSFC and assistant research scientist at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Maryland, College Park.

Our paper and cover published in the March 26th 2015 issue of Nature


My main research topic is the study of super-massive black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGN) through X-ray observations collected from orbiting satellites.

In particular, I investigate the origin of black hole driven winds, such as the powerful ultra-fast outflows (UFOs), and their feedback on the AGN host galaxies.

More information regarding my research and personal activities can be found in this website. I hope you will find the content interesting. You can reach me here.
