More about this group

The group develop numerical simulation code to solve problems of planet formation. The techniques have been used to to address several specific problems, including:

(i) the effects of collisions on the chemical composition and physical structure of comets and their precursor bodies.

(ii) the formation of satellites and families via collisions.

(iii) the development of generalized collision outcomes for planet formation simulations.

The group look at theories of modified gravity and other extensions of General Relativity. There is also interest in string theory motivated modifications of gravity.
