Accretion disks and planetary formation

Rebecca is a Stephen Hawking Fellow and Assistant Professor in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick.

Her research focuses on warped and misaligned accretion discs and planet formation. In particular, Rebecca considers protoplanetary discs (accretion discs around young stars) as well as black hole discs.

In her work, Rebecca uses high resolution three-dimensional numerical simulations to model these systems. To see some of these simulations and learn more about her work, checkout her website or youtube page.

In addition to Rebecca's talk, Mark will once again be providing his fascinating monthly update on what we might expect to see during October.

Mark's Sky Notes are available here.
