Biography
Joined FSC in 2014

Areas of Research and Teaching Expertise:

I am an extra-galactic astronomer.  My research focuses primarily on the interaction between radio galaxies within galaxy clusters and the hot, X-ray bright, intracluster medium in which they are embedded. By using large X-ray databases such as the Chandra and XMM Newton archives, along with SDSS, and radio surveys, I study the formation and evolution of the most massive gravitationally bound structures in the Universe.

Previous Academic or Professional Positions:
Visiting Professor of Scientific Thinking at the American University in Cairo (2011-2013)
