Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology
Blegdamsvej 17, 2100 København Ø
Irene’s research activity is in the area of theoretical astroparticle physics, with focus on neutrino astrophysics and cosmology. In particular, Irene is interested in exploring the role of weakly interacting particles, such as active and sterile neutrinos, in astrophysical environments. She also aims at unveiling what can be learnt from the observation of neutrinos from the most extreme but yet mysterious astrophysical transients occurring in our Universe, such as core-collapse supernovae, neutron star mergers and gamma-ray bursts. Thanks to generous support from the Villum Foundation, Irene leads a research group at the NBIA with focus on these subjects.
