Biographical Info

I study astrophysical fluid dynamics with an emphasis on star formation, stellar feedback in the interstellar medium, accretion, and explosive transients, using analytical studies, numerical simulations, and observations. Recent projects include ways to constrain the interactions between star clusters and galaxies, models for star cluster feedback in starburst galaxies, a catalog of young giant star clusters, long-duration modeling of stellar tidal disruptions, new models for supernova shocks and the dynamics of gamma-ray bursts, simulations of massive black hole accretion, fragmentation criteria in star and planet formation, models for protostellar outflows and their interaction with molecular clouds, and models for giant molecular cloud evolution.

Biographical Info

My primary research interest in theoretical astrophysics is the study of the structure and evolution of planets, accretion discs and stars. The fluid dynamics of these objects is a topic I particularly enjoy exploring, through a combination of analytical and numerical simulation work.

Biographical Info

My research interest lies primarily in experimental astrophysics and astronomical instrumentation, along with observational studies of various objects. I’ve developed instruments, especially infrared spectrographs (e.g., WIFIS, NIRES, MOSMAS), and am interested in advancing novel devices (e.g., polarization gratings) and techniques for astronomical applications. Observationally, I am more interested in objects with high-energy phenomena, such as supernovae and supernova remnants (both stellar and gaseous), optical transients, ultra-luminous X-ray sources and massive stars.
