Norbert Werner

Norbert Werner is an astrophysicist, the leader of the “Lendület Hot Universe” research group
at Eötvös University in Budapest, Hungary and an associate professor (Docent) in the Department
of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics at the Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic.

He is mainly interested in the hot atmospheres of galaxies and clusters of galaxies, black hole
feedback, and in the use of nano-satellites in astrophysics.

Kiran Lakhchaura

Kiran did her PhD from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai (India) on the
X-ray signatures of mergers in clusters of galaxies. Before joining our group she did her
first postdoc at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore (India).

Besides her X-ray analysis skills pertaining to data from the Chandra and XMM-Newton
observatories which she uses for analyzing the thermodynamics of galaxy clusters, groups of
galaxies and giant elliptical galaxies, she also worked on developing a new Bayesian
analysis method for deprojecting the thermodynamic profiles of these objects.

François Mernier

Originally from Belgium, François graduated in the Netherlands (joint Leiden Observatory - SRON
PhD) in June 2017 before joining our group.

His fields of expertise are the observation of chemical abundances in the intracluster medium,
XMM-Newton data analysis and the SPEX fitting package.

François also has a strong interest for outreach.

Masanori Ohno

Masanori recieved his PhD at the Hiroshima University (Hiroshima, Japan). Then he became a
project scientist of ISAS/JAXA (Kanagawa, Japan), postdoctoral researcher in ISAS/JAXA, and
then assistant professor in the Hiroshima University.

His fields of expertize are the X-ray and gamma-ray data analysis, developing a Monte Carlo
method and instruments for extragalactic compact objects such as gamma-ray bursts (GRBs)
and active galactic nuclei (AGN). At Eötvös University University he works on the CubeSat project
called CAMELOT.

Jakub Řípa

Jakub received his PhD at the Charles University (Prague, Czech Rep.). Then he became a
postdoctoral researcher in the Ewha Womans University (Seoul, Korea), in the Sungkyunkwan
University (Suwon, Korea), in the National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan) and at the
Astronomical Institute of the Charles University.

His fields of expertize are gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), instrumentation for GRB detection and
statistical methods for data analysis. At Eötvös University he works on the CubeSat project
called CAMELOT.

Nhut Truong

Nhut did his PhD at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata". Before joining our group in Budapest,
he was a short-visiting postdoc at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and
Education - IFRISE (ICISE, Vietnam).

His research interests focus on using cosmological simulations (e.g. IllustrisTNG) for studies of hot
atmospheres in galaxies and clusters of galaxies.
