The MIT Kavli Institute paves the way for new developments in space- & ground-based astrophysics. Our faculty, research staff, and students develop technology & instrumentation with a focus on an engineering and technical core.
Researchers at The Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research explore extreme and unusual phenomena found beyond the Earth including extrasolar planets, black holes, neutron stars, and distant galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
Currently, my primary research is focused on understanding the formation and destruction of cool-core galaxy clusters in the largest volume of the IllutrisTNG simulations. Understanding the evolution of cool-core systems provides a wealth of information on how the baryonic processes, such as AGN feedback, influence galaxy clusters and their observable properties.
