I am working with Dr. José L. Gómez in the VLBI Group at Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía, IAA - CSIC, Granada, Spain for my Master’s Thesis for the academic year 2021-2022. The aim of the thesis is to determine the magnetic field structure of relativistic jets of supermassive black holes by analysing multi-frequency VLBA polarimetric observations. The project is funded by JAE Intro 2021 Scholarship by CSIC, Spain.
I am interested in studying black hole accretion and relativistic jet formation through very long baseline interferometric (VLBI) observations with mm-wave arrays, such as the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), and the space VLBI missions like RadioAstron. I intend to focus on RML Imaging Methods and Dynamical Imaging for the analysis of these observations during my PhD.
In particular, I am interested in studying how jets are launched, what their magnetic field structure is and how it affects the jet formation. I am curious to find out how these jets stay collimated at large scales. I am also keen on learning synthetic data generation and performing simulations of the jets to compare them with the observations.
