High-speed astrophysics with ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM are high-speed optical cameras that can take hundreds/thousands of CCD images per second simultaneously in three/five colours, respectively. Read more

Multi-messenger astrophysics of gravitational wave sources – spin-interaction of EMRI with a pulsar

The direct LIGO/VIRGO detection of gravitational waves (GW) emitted by compact astrophysical objects confirmed a key prediction of general relativity and opened up new opportunities for the investigation of astrophysics and fundamental in the extreme environments associated with the GW sources.

Discovering pulsars to perform precision astrophysics

This PhD project offers a unique opportunity to play an important role in a large international radio astronomy survey collaboration with a proven track record for high-impact pulsar discoveries. Read more

Exploring the environments of exploding stars

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Supernovae are the explosive deaths of certain types of stars; in particular, stars a lot more massive than our Sun. The route from massive star formation… Read more

The dynamics of small-N systems

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Most stars form in groups of dozens to a few hundred, but our understanding of the dynamics of such systems is surprisingly very lacking.  In particular… Read more

Surveying the sky for hungry black holes

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Over the next few years, a new dimension in astronomy will reach maturity. the temporal dimension. Rather relying on static "photos" of the sky, astronomers will transition to "filming" sky night after night. Read more

What triggers the growth of Black Holes?

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
It seems that all massive galaxies host, at their centres, supermassive black holes with masses of between a million to a billion times the mass of our Sun. Read more

Pathways to thermonuclear supernovae

Thermonuclear supernovae are the result of the explosion of a white dwarf star in a binary system, the most well known of which are the cosmologically important Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia). Read more

Dissolution of star-forming regions

Abstract. Most star-forming regions are not long-lived, undergoing dissolution into the Galactic disc within 10Myr. The majority of the literature asserts that this is due to 'gas expulsion', where most of the gravitational potential is in the gas left over from star formation. Read more
