My research is focussed primarily on the theory of planet formation, with particular emphasis on understanding how planets and planetesimals interact with the protoplanetary discs within which they form, and how this interaction affects the formation and global architecture of planetary systems. Other areas of interest include the development of models to explain the current data on extrasolar planets, the dynamics of astrophysical discs, and numerical astrophysics.
