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

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

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

JWST studies of Brown Dwarf Variability

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
Brown dwarfs are objects in the mass gap between stars and planets. Lacking the contaminating light from a host star, observations of brown dwarfs can provide insight into what to expect from future observations of massive, Jupiter-like exoplanets. Read more

Greenness versus greyness: greenspaces in and around cities for hazard mitigation and resilience

The overarching aim of this proposal is to increase our resilience to geo- and climatic hazards by assessing the current state and identifying the future potential of greenspaces in and around cities in the Global South to better inform future urban expansion. Read more

Electric Propulsion Systems for Small Spacecraft

The University of Auckland is conducting research into electric propulsion systems for small spacecraft. We are looking for a PhD candidate to research the miniaturisation of a high-Tc superconducting magnetoplasmadynamic drive and its subsystems. Read more
