Research Interests:

X-ray imaging and spectroscopy of active galactic nuclei and quasars modelled with accretion disks around supermassive black holes

Polarization of X-rays from active galaxies and neutron stars and the design of an instrument to measure polarization to 1-3% (GEMS web site) and (my design) for a broad-band, soft X-ray polarimeter.

Hot neutron star atmospheres and X-ray bursts from them
