Dr. Paola Domínguez Fernández studies large-scale magnetic fields and non-thermal phenomena in the Universe, with special interest in the magnetized cosmic web and galaxy clusters. Specifically, the areas related to her work are: primordial magnetic fields, small-scale dynamo theory, turbulence in the intracluster medium, shock dynamics, particle acceleration mechanisms and radio continuum/polarized emission.
