### Astrophysics Research

Students working with Dr. Berenji have been involved with computational and observational astrophysics with the Fermi Large Area Telescope. The focus is detecting axions from neutron stars. We study the process $a\to 2 \gamma$ with axions $a$ produced within neutron stars.

Please see the arXiv for Phys Rev D publication: https://arxiv.org/abs/1602.00091

We are currently working on extended emission of gamma rays around neutron stars produced from axion decays.
