School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh


My main area of research is theoretical astrophysics with a focus on the dynamical evolution of collisional stellar systems (e.g. globular and nuclear star clusters). I am particularly interested in the effect of a retained population of stellar mass black holes, internal rotation and velocity anisotropy, and dark matter. I also have an interest in machine learning and it's application to problems in theoretical astrophysics.
