Research overview

My current research includes investigating the effect non-ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) processes have on star formation and on the formation and evolution of protostellar discs.

My technical expertise is in computational astrophysics, including code development (specifically the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics, SPH, method), performing large (magneto-)hydrodynamical simulations, and analysing and interpreting large data sets.
