My research spans various aspects of high energy astrophysics and multimessenger signals from binary stars. E.g., accretion around compact objects, emission mechanisms of high energy non-thermal X-rays from black hole coronae, the physics of particle heating and acceleration in astrophysical plasmas (and the emission of high-energy neutrinos from them), and the origin of coherent radio emission from sources like Pulsars and Fast Radio Bursts. I study them by performing kinetic plasma simulations (PIC), hydrodynamical fluid simulations, analytical pen-and-paper modeling, and also by directly observing the astronomical sources via satellite and ground-based telescopes. I am advised by Lorenzo Sironi and Brian D. Metzger.
