Current Research Activities

I want to understand the entire cycle of cosmic-ray acceleration and interaction in our Universe. High-energy acceleration sites are likely to be extended and their analysis will not be easy. Deep and extensive observations with gamma-ray and X-ray observatories are essential for this, but not sufficient. With collaborators, I am collecting relevant observational data and casting them into a coherent multi-wavelength 3D model of a typical acceleration site like RXJ1713. Physics processes are being simulated to obtain spatially resolved gamma-ray and X-ray spectra over the extended source. In near future, the dark-matter annihilation signal will be searched in such multi-wavelength analyses. Please browse through my activities in such context.
