PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS
As head of M.E.G.A. I am proud to have a diverse group of enthusiastic astrophysicists working with me.
Postdoctoral Fellow (S22)
Bailey will join the team during the summer of 2022. She focuses on the study of the physical processes governing astrophysical accretion discs in compact binary systems in our Galaxy.
PhD Graduate Student
Soud joined the team in 2018. His focus is on multi-messenger astrophysics and “next” Enriched Xenon Observatory (nEXO).
Anan joined the team in 2020. She works on characterizing star formation in nearby galaxies with the SITELLE instrument on CFHT.
MSc Graduate Student
Sam joined the team in 2021. He is located primarily at Bishop’s University and is co-supervised by John Ruan.
Kristen joined the team in 2020. She uses multi-wavelength observations to ID the brightest X-ray sources in star clusters.
Hope joined the team in 2016. Her focus is on supermassive black hole gas dynamics in Sgr A* and other nearby galaxies.
Nick joined the team in 2020. He works to identify optical and infrared counterparts to GW sources.
Nayyer joined the team in Winter 2022. He will use machine learning and multi-messenger astrophysics to study compact object mergers.
Nicole joined the team in 2021. She is using multi-messenger astrophysics to study compact object mergers.
