Research interests

  • Compact stars, including: white dwarfs, neutron stars, pulsars and magnetars.
  • Fluid mechanical problems related to accretion in binary stars and radiation transfer effects.
  • Radiation processes and transfer mechanisms in accretion flows on to highly magnetic compact stars, such as the magnetic Cataclysmic Variables (MCVs).
  • Modelling of cyclotron radiation from the accretion columns of MCVs.
