Welcome to the activity page of Prof. Yvonne Becherini’s research group focused on Analysis methods & Techniques for High Energy Astrophysics at Université de Paris, Astroparticule et Cosmologie Laboratory and Data Intelligence Institute of Paris and Linnaeus University, Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering.
The scientific focus of the group is in extragalactic astrophysics and, in particular, we are interested in the understanding of particle acceleration in Active Galactic Nuclei and Gamma-Ray Bursts, with the help of current gamma-ray and neutrino observatories. Our current focus is to accelerate the delivery of scientific results through the help of Machine Learning.
We collaborate with several other departments and faculties in the framework of the Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) research centre and the Data Intelligence Institute of Paris (diiP).
For Bachelor or Master students interested in projects in gamma-ray astronomy and/or computing in astroparticle physics, please refer to the thesis projects page. Students from Physics, Engineering and Computer Science departments are also welcome to do a project with us.
Candidate PhD students should wait until a PhD position is advertised. If such a position exists on this page, you are welcome to apply.
