Active supermassive Black Holes and their jets - that's my field of research in Astronomy. In particular, I am searching for pairs of supermassive black holes that might merge in the future and emit gravitational waves.
With the help of Very Long Baseline Interferometry I am studying acitve Black Holes (e.g., M87) and their stories.
