|June 2010-May 2013||Research associate at Monash University, Australia. Collaboration with Dr. D.J. Price.
I developed entirely a new SPH algorithm for dust and gas mixtures suited for almost all astrophysical problems. This lead to applications in studying planetesimal accretion on a planet in discs and in improving the theory of SPH kernels.
|Sept 2009-May 2010||Associate research fellow at Ens de Lyon, France.
I derived criteria on the values of the density and temperature profiles for disc to retain their grains. I proved that planetesimals formation by gravitational instability may be possible since grains are growing and turbulent correlations are moderate enough.
|Sept 2007-Sept 2009||Ph.D. Thesis at CRAL at Ens de Lyon, France. "Grain growth: the early stages of planet formation". Supervision: Dr J.-F. Gonzalez.
I ran the first SPH simulations of grain growth in protoplanetary discs, showing that particles are not always accreted onto the central star.
