We report on the discovery and timing observations of 29 distant long-period pulsars found in the ongoing Arecibo L-band Feed Array pulsar survey. Following discovery with the Arecibo Telescope, confirmation and timing observations of these pulsars over several years at Jodrell Bank Observatory have yielded high-precision positions and measurements of rotation and radiation properties. We have used multi-frequency data to measure the interstellar scattering properties of some of these pulsars…

Radio study of HESS J1857+026: Gamma-rays from a superbubble?
Aims. We provide new insights into the nature of HESS J1857+026, a very-high-energy γ-ray source whose complex morphology in the TeV band was attributed to the superposition of two distinct sources.
An image-based search for pulsars among Fermi unassociated LAT sources
We describe an image-based method that uses two radio criteria, compactness and spectral index, to identify promising pulsar candidates among Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) unassociated sources.
Radio study of the extended TeV source VER J1907+062
This paper aims to provide new insights on the origin of the TeV source VER J1907+062 through new high-quality radio observations. We used the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) to observe the

Finding binaries from phase modulation of pulsating stars with Kepler: V. Orbital parameters, with eccentricity and mass-ratio distributions of 341 new binaries
The orbital parameters of binaries at intermediate periods (102–103 d) are difficult to measure with conventional methods and are very incomplete. We have undertaken a new survey, applying our
