Research Interests

Everything.

But more specifically, astrophysical gas dynamics.

This includes explosive phenomena such as supernovae and gamma ray bursts, but I'm also interested in the dynamics of gaseous disks, including accretion disks powering the outflows in GRBs and AGN, circumbinary disks surrounding potential LIGO/LISA/PTA sources, and protoplanetary disks during the first few million years of a solar system's lifetime.

Most of my work involves developing and using novel methods for computational gas dynamics (solving the fluid equations on the computer) to study the dynamics of these kinds of systems.
