Research

I currently work in the area of observational cosmology; more specifically spinning dust. I have used the observations from the Very Small Array, WMAP, IRAS and other infrared and radio frequency data to analyse a narrow region on the plane of the Milky Way. The aim was to find objects that are anomalously high emitters at microwave frequencies. This research is crucial for understanding the cosmic microwave background radiation.
I am also interested in component separation in the Galaxy, HI surveys and the study of UC HII regions.
