I work on gamma-ray bursts, especially on the modelling of their afterglows in order to deduce the physical properties of the burst, such as explosion energy and collimation angle. Furthermore, my interest includes other explosive transients in astrophysics and trying to find very rare ones with wide-field or even all-sky radio observations. Among others, this entails interesting challenges at the interface with computer science, in fast streaming data analysis and data mining.
