Eruptions, disruptions and explosions in our Universe!!

My research focuses on the  biggest explosions that occur in our Universe: Supernovae and Gamma-Ray Bursts. Both phenomena signal the catastrophic death of stars, leading to the birth of exotic compact objects like neutron stars and black holes. Investigating the high-energy  (UV, to X-rays and gamma-rays) properties of these explosions, I want to understand the physical processes that cause such a dramatic energy release in a matter of seconds!
