My research in theoretical and computational astrophysics focuses on the formation of extrasolar planetary systems and the astrophysics of black holes. Recent work includes predictions for ALMA observations of protoplanetary disks, development of a new model for high energy accretion based on strongly magnetized disks, studies of tidal disruption events, and analytic and simulation studies of planetesimal formation. As part of JILA's theoretical astrophysics group I share research interests with Mitch Begelman and Ann-Marie Madigan, and work with a group of postdocs and students that currently include Jake Simon, Upasana Das, Bhupendra Mishra, Vladimir Zhdankin and Dan Gole.
