STUDENT PROJECTS

Please note that I can properly supervise one MSc or MSci student per year only. If you are interested in doing a project with me, you should have an excellent maths and physics background and get in touch early.

I am happy to supervise student projects in most areas of gravitation and cosmology. Current projects include:

  • Modified gravity
  • Continuum mechanics
  • Cosserat elasticity
  • Dynamical systems in cosmology
  • Carter-Pensore diagrams
  • Centre manifolds and normal forms in cosmology
