In the Theory Group
we apply physics and computational methods
to seek general insight into exotic phenomena
that are studied in space science.
Theoretical modelling informs the interpretation of practical observation,
while observation stimulates and constrains theories.
At MSSL, our particular interests
accretion onto degenerate stars,
galaxy dynamics & formation,
isolated neutron stars,
jets in active galactic nuclei,
ultra-compact binary systems,
ultraluminous X-ray sources,
X-ray sources in galaxies.
