I am in interested in classical general relativity and fluid mechanics (including MHD and elastic matter) in general relativity. I have worked extensively on hyperbolic formulations of the Einstein equations for numerical relativity, and on the physics of gravitational collapse.
Current research projects that have a modelling aspect are:
oscillations of strongly magnetised neutron stars (magnetars),
including elasticity into nonlinear HSRC GR hydro codes (see below)
numerical relativity applications in the adS-CFT correspondence (4-dimensional quantum field theory from 5-dimensional gravity).
