The Theorectical Astrophysics research program explores the areas of:
- compact stars, such as white dwarfs, neutron stars (pulsars and magnetars ) and black holes
- radiation processes and transfer mechanisms in accretion flows on to highly magnetic compact stars
- modelling of accretion disks
- modelling of stars and magnetic atmospheres
- cataclysmic variable binaries
- searching for the progenitors of type Ia supernovae.
