I am trying to uncover the magnetic soul of the Universe. Although you cannot see the magnetism with your eyes, this fundamental force winds through the spiral arms and influences everything from the formation of stars to the galaxy’s structure.

Where does it come from? How does it affect us? To unwind the answers, I am developing the most advanced theoretical model, searching for observational evidence via radio telescope, and using supercomputers to develop state-of-the-art simulations of cosmic magnetism.
