Majidul Rahaman


I am Majidul Rahaman, INSPIRE Fellow at DAASE, IIT Indore, India.

Research Interest: Merging activities in a cluster of galaxies; Shock Fronts, Cold fronts, turbulence, and gas sloshing in intra-cluster medium (ICM); Investigating the mechanism of the origin of diffuse radio emission (Halo, Mini-Halo, Relic, Radio Phoenix) in clusters; AGN feedback in galaxy clusters.

I am also interested in simulations on how the cluster dynamics are related to the origin of diffuse radio emission in clusters.
