Area of research
Planet Formation Group
I am a computational astrophysicist. My research interests focus on the formation and evolution of planets and small bodies, such as asteroids and comets through the use of numerical simulations. There is more information on my group's research page.
I am actively involved in both teaching and research in the School of Physics. This year I am teaching two undergraduate lecture courses -- the Planets module of Stars and Planets and Electricity and Magnetism. I am also supervising a number of research projects (both undergraduate and postgraduate) investigating various aspects of planet formation.
- planetary astrophysics
- solar system evolution
- collisional physics
- numerical methods
