I am an astrophysicist specialising in the study of compact objects, particularly supermassive black holes. These objects are typically found at the centres of each galaxy and are observed when they accrete matter from the surrounding medium. As the brightest persistent sources of radiation in the cosmos, these black holes are believed to play a crucial role in galactic evolution over cosmic timescales. As black holes are not directly visible in the electromagnetic spectrum, my research focuses on understanding the structure and evolution of the accreting material around these central black holes. For that, I analyse the properties of high-energy photons combined with multiwavelength observations. Currently, my primary research interest is investigating the variability in high-energy emissions, particularly in X-rays, in the context of active galactic nuclei astrophysics.
