I am Senior Astronomer in the Astronomy Group at ASTRON
I am Professor of Astronomy at the Kapteyn Institute in Groningen

I have received an ERC Advanced Grant in 2012. Read about my project: RadioLife, the group working with me and the papers we have published.

I have received the Honor of “Commendatore della Stella d’Italia” (Commander in the Order of the Star of Italy) from the Italian Ambassador in the Netherlands, Francesco Azzarello


My research interests are: study of the gas and its role in active galactic nuclei, study of the interaction between the gas and the radio plasma, exploring the life-cycle of radio sources using low frequency observations (LOFAR). study of the gas (and in particular neutral hydrogen @ 21 cm) in the evolution of early-type galaxies.

Our latest result “Jet acceleration of the molecular outflow in the Seyfert galaxy IC5063” published in Nature (Tadhunter, Morganti, Rose, Oonk, Oosterloo, 2014, doi:10.1038/nature13520).
