Gruber fellow, Finnish Center for Astronomy
with ESO (FINCA)
I am a Gruber fellow at the Finnish Center for Astronomy with ESO at the University of Turku. I study jets from supermassive black holes in the centers of distant galaxies. I am particularly fond of a particular category of such objects called blazars, which are the most persistently bright objects in the known Universe.
I am interested in the multiwavelength - multimessenger emission from supermassive black hole jets in all forms, shapes, and sizes.
