The recent discovery of a diffuse neutrino flux up to PeV energies raises the question of which populations of astrophysical sources contribute to this diffuse signal. One extragalactic candidate source population to produce high-energy neutrinos are Blazars. We present results from a likelihood analysis searching for cumulative neutrino emission from Blazar populations selected with the 2nd Fermi LAT AGN catalogue (2LAC) using an IceCube data set that has been optimized for the detection of…

OBSERVATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF A COSMIC MUON NEUTRINO FLUX FROM THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE USING SIX YEARS OF ICECUBE DATA
The IceCube Collaboration has previously discovered a high-energy astrophysical neutrino flux using neutrino events with interaction vertices contained within the instrumented volume of the IceCube
Strong constraints on hadronic models of blazar activity from Fermi and IceCube stacking analysis
Context. High-energy emission from blazars is produced by electrons that are either accelerated directly, under the assumption of leptonic models of blazar activity, or produced in interactions of
Statistical analysis on the origin of the IceCube neutrino events
In this thesis an algorithm for analysing the correlation between IceCube neutrino events and astronomical sources was developed. IceCube is located at the South Pole and currently the neutrino
Characterizing cosmic neutrino sources
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a km-sized neutrino telescope located at the geographical South Pole. The telescope consists of an array of more than 5,000 photosensors, embedded deep in the
How bright can the brightest neutrino source be
After the discovery of extraterrestrial high-energy neutrinos, the next major goal of neutrino telescopes will be identifying astrophysical objects that produce them. The flux of the brightest source
Possible Counterparts of IceCube High Energy Neutrinos
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory has provided the first map of the high energy (∼ 0.01 – 1 PeV) sky in neutrinos. Since neutrinos propagate undeflected, their arrival direction is an important
Seeking neutrino emission from AGN through temporal and spatial cross-correlation
Active galactic nuclei (AGN) are a promising source for high-energy astrophysical neutrinos (HEANs). By the end of 2022, the Vera C. Rubin Observatory (VRO) will begin to observe & 10 million AGN

The recent observation of TeV-PeV neutrinos by IceCube has opened a new window to the highenergy Universe. I will discuss this signal in the context of multi-messenger astronomy. For extragalactic
Characterizing cosmic neutrino sources – a measurement of the energy spectrum and flavor composition of the cosmic neutrino flux observed with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a km-sized neutrino telescope located at the geographical South Pole. The telescope consists of an array of more than 5,000 photosensors, embedded deep in the
IceCube at the Threshold
IceCube has observed neutrinos above 100 TeV at a level significantly above the steeply falling background of atmospheric neutrinos. The astrophysical signal is seen both in the high-energy starting
