About the Project
We will use a combination of 1-D, 2-D and 3-D calculations to study disc dynamics and evolution over a wide range of time-scales. We will then use radiative transfer modelling to generate synthetic observations, in order to test our models against new data from facilities such as ALMA and the ESO VLT. The overall aim of the project is to build up a detailed understanding the key physical processes that shape the appearance and evolution of planet-forming discs.
