Primary fields of research

Dark matter particle properties, and characteristics of dark matter structures.

Current research

I am presently trying to understand and measure properties of equilibrated dark matter structures such as density and velocity anisotropy profiles. I also search an understanding of the origin of hot gas properties, such as temperature and density profiles.

Selected publications

  1. Published
