Sparse spectral methods on new geometries for differential equations

Spectral methods are used to compute solutions to differential and integral equations. Typically, this is done by expansions in orthogonal basis functions on the entire domain of the problem, or on multiple subdomains in a spectral element (or high-p-finite element) method. Read more

How do dynamics direct reactivity in heme proteins?

Heme-containing proteins are ubiquitous in biological oxygen metabolism, playing a variety of roles including oxygen transport, detoxification of reactive oxygen species, catalysis of monooxygenation reactions, and the complete four-electron reduction of oxygen to water. Read more

Electrodynamics of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere coupled system

The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetic field leads to dynamic phenomena in near-Earth space, including the energization and circulation of plasma within the magnetosphere and ionosphere – the most visible manifestation of which is the polar auroras – which lead to a hostile environment for space- and ground-based technologies.

Investigating young variable stars in Orion with NGTS

The Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS. Wheatley et al., 2018, MNRAS, 475, 4476) is an STFC supported facility consisting of 12 20cm mirror telescopes fitted with wide field optical CCDs optimised for operation in the 520-890 nm wavelength range. Read more

Characterising eclipsing binaries from NGTS and TESS

Eclipsing binaries allow us to determine accurate, model-independent radii and masses for the two stars in the system. These measurements are important for understanding uncertainties in the mass-radius relationship for, in particular, very low mass red (M) dwarf stars. Read more

Magnetosphere-surface Interactions at Mercury

BepiColombo is the first interplanetary dual-spacecraft mission, comprising the ESA Mercury Planetary Orbiter (MPO) focusing on the planet, and JAXA Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO) dedicated to the space environment. Read more
