Current research interests of Fabrizio Brighenti involve the astrophysics of the interstellar medium in galaxies (Dwarfs, Spirals and Ellipticals) and in Galaxy Clusters. These studies are developed in collaboration with scientists at the University of California and NASA-Ames and currently focus on the following subjects:
i) Dynamics of galactic winds and their effect on galaxy evolution;
ii) Feedback from active galactic nuclei on the hot gas in groups and clusters;
iii) Origin and emission of the interstellar dust in early-type galaxies;
iv) Estimate and distribution of dark matter in galaxies and galaxy groups;
v) Interaction between cosmic rays and the intracluster medium in galaxy clusters;
vi) Chemical Enrichment history in galaxies and galaxy clusters.
