Interactions between Stars

    My current research concentrates observational and theoretical work on close evolved binaries. In particular I work on planetary nebulae and thier central stars, and the hypothesis that most of them may be the result of binary interactions, rather than, as is traditionally believed, post-giant single star evolution.

Graduate projects (Master and PhD)

Post-doc project

    We are starting a new project to include dust into hydrodynamic simulations of the common envelope binary interaction in collaboration with Lionel Siess (Universite Libre de Bruxelles), Daniel Price (Monash University) and Mansi Kasliwal (Caltech). This is to determine the impact of dust formation on envelope dynamics and on thelight properties. We are hiring at the moment (February 2021), so send me a mail if you are interested.
