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.
