The research of our group is dedicated to the Evolution of Starforming Galaxies and focuses on the Theory of the Interstellar and Intergalactic medium, the acceleration and propagation of high energy particles, and the interpretation of their observational signatures mainly in X-rays, UV, as well as in gamma-rays and radio continuum. Our approach is basically theoretical (both analytical and numerical), but tightly connected to observations.
