Research

 

robert-1My research focuses on high-resolution radio observations of radio jets in active galactic nuclei (AGN), which is achieved via the technique of very long baseline interferometry (VLBI). It allows radio telescopes from around the world to be combined to a single telescope. For observations of northern hemisphere objects, I am using the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), the European VLBI Network (EVN) and the Global mm-VLBI Array (GMVA). I am also a member of the TANAMI collaboration, which is running the only VLBI monitoring program of AGN jets in the southern sky, in combination with multiwavelength observations throughout the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
