Center for Astrophysics


Jordan Eagle is a PhD student from Clemson University working under the advisory of Dr. Marco Ajello in the high energy astrophysics division. Specifically, Jordan researches candidate cosmic ray accelerators like supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe) where a thorough multiwavelength analysis is performed on all objects of interest to determine emission mechanisms, particle populations present, and more. At the CfA, Jordan focuses on identifying and characterizing gamma-ray emitting pulsar wind nebulae to develop the first comprehensive PWN catalog using the Fermi-LAT. Jordan aims to make a complete picture of each catalog object across the electromagnetic spectrum with data from Fermi, Chandra, XMM-Newton, NUSTAR, and optical instruments such as Gemini. The resulting comprehensive catalog will provide, for the first time, a detailed description of the properties of PWN across the light spectrum which will ultimately allow us to disentangle the PWN spectrum from its host SNR and to understand the emission mechanisms and particle populations at work.
