Mikhail Revnivtsev new Cluster Fellow

The Excellence Cluster Universe welcomes Dr. Mikhail G. Revnivtsev as a Research Fellow. From the first of August on, he will be part of the cluster’s research areas E and F.


Born and educated in Russia, Revnivtsev received his PhD and habilitation from the Space Research Institute in Moscow. For the last six years he has held a Postdoc position at the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics (MPA)in Garching. At MPA Revnivtsev initiated a project which aimed for the final solution of the 25-year long problem of the origin of the Galactic ridge X-ray emission (GRXE). This is fundamental for our understanding of the energy content of the stellar and interstellar components of our Galaxy.

At the Cluster, Revnivtsev will continue this project. In combination with the deep ground based (RTT150) and space based (Hubble, Spitzer) observations of the selected regions of the Galaxy, he is positive about finding an answer to this problem within the next couple of years.
