Renato Dupke is a visiting assistant research scientist at the University of Michigan. He is also a research scientist from the National Observatory in Río de Janeiro, Brazil, a scientist at Eureka Scientific, and a visiting professor at the University of Alabama. His research emphases include high-energy astrophysics, the origin and evolution of clusters and groups of galaxies, and cosmological surveys. He serves as the scientific co-director of the Javalambre Physics of the Accelerating Universe Astronomical Survey (J-PAS) from the Javalambre Astronomical Observatory in Spain, a stage IV cosmological experiment that will provide spectrophotometric data on hundreds of millions of galaxies up to z>1.2 in the northern sky.
Origin and evolution of the intracluster medium (ICM), fossil groups, ICM energetics, ICM bulk velocities, heavy element injection mechanisms in clusters and groups, cluster merging, interaction of galaxies with the ICM, supernovae explosion mechanisms, large-scale structure and observational cosmology, dark matter properties.
