Myriam Gitti

Associate Professor

Department of Physics and Astronomy "Augusto Righi"

Academic discipline: FIS/05 Astronomy and Astrophysics


Keywords: clusters and groups of galaxies intra-cluster medium active galactic nuclei (AGN) AGN feedback radio mini-halos non-thermal emission X-ray emission radio galaxies cooling flows

The research interests of Myriam Gitti are in the field of extragalactic astrophysics, in particular:
  • Properties and evolution of clusters and groups of galaxies derived from multi-wavelength observations
  • AGN feedback
  • Interaction between thermal intra-cluster medium and relativistic plasma
  • X-ray cavities and radio bubbles observed in cool core systems
  • Non-thermal emission from galaxy clusters and groups
  • Radio mini-halos and reacceleration of relativistic particles 
  • Supermassive binary black hole systems
  • Mass determination of galaxy clusters from X-ray observations
