Ashley Chrimes - Personal Profiles
Main Research Fields
My research interests are in the explosive transients that occur at the end of high-mass stellar evolution, or arise from the compact objects left behind. I combine theory (e.g. population sythesis) with observations (of host galaxies, the transients themselves and Galactic remannts) to investigate the nature of transient progenitors. I am particularly interested in gamma-ray bursts (both collapsar and compact merger varieties), fast blue optical transients and fast radio bursts.
