Abstract :

The time-variable radio sky may hold the key to the most violent events in our universe since it can be used as a natural laboratory to study fundamental physics. X-ray Binaries, Gamma Ray Bursts, Supernovae, mergers of compact objects (neutron stars, black holes), and tidal disruption events all produce transient radio emission through synchrotron radiation. Time domain radio surveys are essential in order to probe the physical mechanisms that drive these explosions and outflows. In this talk, I will present our recent work on compact objects and radio transients using imaging data, that have been taken with SKA (Square Kilometre Array) precursors.
