Sep 2014: Summer vacation projects for 2014/2015 now available.
Nov. 2013: I am now a Future Fellow, having been awarded a 4-year research fellowship from the Australian Research Council in the 2013 round. Am delighted!
I will be lecturing on SPH at the IMPRS summer school on computational astrophysics in Heidelberg, Germany, Sep 10-14th, 2012.
20th March 2012: New Scientist Article on our recent paper - "Hungry black holes eat two courses at once"
Feb 2012: I will be lecturing on SPH at the ANITA/ASA numerical astrophysics summer school in Melbourne
Greetings. I am a Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow at the Monash Centre for Astrophysics (MoCA) in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Prior to this I was a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Astrophysics group of the School of Physics at the University of Exeter (before which I also held a
I am currently a member of the Editorial Board for PASA, the Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia and am actively involved with the Scientists in Schools program.

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics and Magnetohydrodynamics is a pedagogical review and introduction to Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics and Magnetohydrodynamics I have written for J. Comp. Phys (also at arXiv:1012.1885). It is based on some lectures I gave at the ASTROSIM summer school in Torun, Poland, and coincides with the release of the NDSPMHD code.
