Theory and observations of neutron stars and related energetic transients (MAGNESIA)
The ERC MAGNESIA research group, which started in June 2019 thanks to an ERC Consolidator Grant awarded to Nanda Rea, focuses on a range of topics related to neutron stars. These stellar remnants form in supernova explosions of massive stars and are home to conditions that cannot be recreated on Earth, making them amazing cosmic laboratories to study matter under extreme conditions. In particular, the group, which currently hosts 4 PhD students and 7 postdoctoral researchers, studies the entire neutron star population, their diversity, as well as their connection with the Universe’s most extreme transient events. In doing so, we combine expertise in multi-band observations, data analysis, theoretical astrophysics, numerical modelling, nuclear and condensed matter physics to discover new neutrons stars, develop state-of-the art 3D magnetic-field evolution models and incorporate novel machine learning techniques into pulsar population synthesis.
