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).
