In my work I focus on population studies of radio galaxies and radio-loud quasars in the cosmological context. The unique information on the underlying physical properties of these sources, such as their kinetic power and type of environments in which they reside, can be derived by means of sophisticated, statistically rigorous numerical simulations (Monte Carlo methods). These numerical simulations require input of both analytical models of radio galaxy evolution and observational data – I am developing both of these aspects.
I am involved in two currently most important new generation low-frequency radio facilities on our way to Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project, the Australian Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and the European LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR), delivering and exploiting their two low frequency all-sky radio surveys: GLEAM and LOFAR Deep Surveys. I am a Project Manager for the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) survey and I am leading one of EMU key science projects on galaxies with active galactic nuclei (AGN). I am also a science team member of a global citizen science project, the Radio Galaxy Zoo.
