Rotation-powered pulsars and their nebulae – the eROSITA view SRG/eROSITA is a soft X-ray (0.2 - 10 keV) telescope which has carried out the deepest X-ray all-sky survey to date. In this talk, I will present how the eROSITA data can be used to study rotation-powered pulsars and their pulsar...

Signal reconstruction for fields using probabilistic forward modeling Many inference tasks in observational astronomy take the form of reconstruction problems where the underlying quantities of interest are fields (functions of space, time and/or frequency) that have to be recovered from noisy and incomplete observational data. These problems are in general...

Thermal X-ray emission from supernova remnants in 3D (M)HD simulations Every supernova (SN) injects around 10^51 ergs into the interstellar medium (ISM), shaping the ISM’s chemical, thermal, and dynamic evolution. Around 70% of the injected energy is subsequently lost by radiative cooling. However, the fate of the emitted cooling photons...
