Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 455(3), 2994-3008. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stv2508

We investigate the observational signatures and physical origin of ram-pressure stripping (RPS) in 63 massive galaxy clusters at z = 0.3–0.7, based on images obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope. Using a training set of a dozen ‘jellyfish’ galaxi... Read More

Deep Chandra observation and numerical studies of the nearest cluster cold front in the sky (2015)
Journal Article
Werner, N., ZuHone, J. A., Zhuravleva, I., Ichinohe, Y., Simionescu, A., Allen, S. W., …Sanders, J. S. (2016). Deep Chandra observation and numerical studies of the nearest cluster cold front in the sky. Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 455(1), 846-858. doi:10.1093/mnras/stv2358

We present the results of a very deep (500 ks) Chandra observation, along with tailored numerical simulations, of the nearest, best resolved cluster cold front in the sky, which lies 90 kpc (19 arcmin) to the north-west of M 87. The northern part of... Read More

Frontier fields clusters: Chandra and JVLA view of the pre-merging cluster MACS J0416.1-2403 (2015)
Journal Article

Merging galaxy clusters leave long-lasting signatures on the baryonic and non-baryonic cluster constituents, including shock fronts, cold fronts, X-ray substructure, radio halos, and offsets between the dark matter (DM) and the gas components. Using... Read More

Stripped elliptical galaxies as probes of ICM physics: I. Tails, wakes, and flow patterns in and around stripped ellipticals (2015)
Journal Article

Tails, wakes, and flow patterns in and around stripped ellipticals. The Astrophysical journal, 806(1), https://doi.org/10.1088/0004-637X/806/1/103

Elliptical cluster galaxies are progressively stripped of their atmospheres due to their motion through the intra-cluster medium (ICM). Deep X-ray observations reveal the fine-structure of the galaxy's remnant atmosphere and its gas tail and wake. Th... Read More
