Ioannis (Yannis) Liodakis

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.


Research Interests

I am interested in the multiwavelength - multimessenger emission from supermassive black hole jets in all forms, shapes, and sizes.

I am a member of many international collaborations (OVRO, RoboPol, LSST-AGN science, IXPE, Fermi, MAGIC, CTA) that study jets across the electromagnetic and particle spectrum.

For more information on my research endeavors see my CV and publication list.
