NOTE!: Work in progress! (I have only recently switched to using OpenScholar!)

My research interests lately focus on topics within, or related to, planet formation, protoplanetary disks and protostellar outflows, such as:
- Numerical methods for simulation of hydro-, magneto- and radiation hydrodynamics, in particular novel, high performance and adaptive methods;
- The earliest stages of planet formation, particularly while the protoplanetary accretion disk still dominates (e.g., planetary embryo formation and growth);
- The chemistry and thermodynamics of protoplanetary disks, in particular things which can affect the disk structure. Molecular and icy chemistry in protoplanetary disks also falls under this umbrella;
- The launching and collimation of magnetically-driven jets from young stellar objects;
- Photoevaporation of protoplanetary discs by stellar UV and X-ray photons.
- Workarounds and approximations to make the calculation of astrochemistry less computationally-intensive!
- Continuum and line ALMA observations of young disks (Class 0/I) and their associated protostellar outflows at the highest-resolutions.
- The promise of deep learning in the age of big data in Astronomy to help us analyze and understand star and planet formation.
I have developed or contributed to several software projects over my academic career. In chronological order (most recent first), these are:
- NIMRAD, a synthetic observation post-processing pipeline for snapshots of MHD simulations of protoplanetary disks (code available upon request).
- DISPATCH, a next-generation and high-performance framework for astrophysical fluid simulations:
- KROME for astrochemical modelling:
- SASRST: Semi-analytic Solutions for 1-D Radiative Shock Tubes:
- AZEuS adaptive mesh refinement code for astrophysical fluid simulations (code available upon request):
