My research usually involves using supercomputers to simulate the hydrodynamics and gravitational dynamics of star and planet forming regions, on scales ranging from single planetary systems to rich star clusters. I am particularly interested in the interface between gravitational N-body systems and the hydrodynamic initial conditions out of which they are born.

Sometimes I make movies to illustrate my research. Here they are! If a vimeo movie pops up, you can click through to the vimeo page for more details about the movie. Some of these have been questionably set to music at this album.
