About This PhD Project

Project Description

Supernovae are massive explosions, associated with the deaths of certain types of stars. The physical conditions involved in exploding a star represent some of the most extreme conditions found in the Universe. Working out how a star explodes gives us crucial insight into extreme physics and the important role supernovae play in the Universe. The geometries of these events serve as a key indicator of the underlying explosion, and this project is concerned with observing the shapes of these supernovae directly and looking for the tell-tale signs of how it blew up.
