Profile Photo
I am a radio astronomer that works on understanding the properties of magnetic fields that pervade the Universe. One of the goals of my work is to uncover the origin of cosmic magnetic fields. In order to do this, the properties of magnetic fields in different cosmic environments (e.g. in galaxies and the intergalactic medium) need to be measured and understood. I also investigate how magnetic fields can launch relativistic jets of plasma from supermassive black holes and how these jets impact their environments on large scales. My work uses data from radio telescopes all around the world, including the LOFAR telescope (a part of which is located in Ireland). I am the co-PI of the LOFAR Magnetism Key Science Project (MKSP): https://lofar-mksp.com/. My employment and education history, in addition to my full list of research publications, can be found here: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3968-3051
