Particle Acceleration Theory, Interstellar Gas Dynamics and Plasma Astrophysics

In very many astronomical systems, ranging in scale from planetary magnetospheres to clusters of galaxies, we see evidence of charged particles with energies very much higher than those of the bulk thermal distributions in these systems. This evidence… Read More

Astroparticle Physics: Gamma Ray Astronomy, X-ray Astronomy and Neutrino Astronomy

Astroparticle Physics is a modern interdisciplinary research field at the interface of astronomy, high energy physics and cosmology. It addresses a diversity of phenomena related to the Universe in their most energetic and violent forms. Our research interests… Read More

Gamma Ray Bursts and Active Galaxies

Interests in High Energy Astrophysics is primarily focused on extragalactic objects, studied using primarliy X-ray and IR observations from satellites. The investigations deal mainly with Active Galactic Nuclei, galaxies with sarbursts and clusters of galaxies. Observational efforts feature… Read More

Star Formation

Stars begin their lives in molecular clouds, vast reservoirs of gas and dust of which there are many in our galaxy. In the past two decades we have learnt that the formation of stars involves not only the… Read More
