## 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 the all areas of gravitation and cosmology. Current projects include:

- Slowly rotating fluids in general relativity
- Continuum mechanics
- Cosserat elasticity
- Dynamical systems in cosmology
- Carter-Pensore diagrams
- Centre manifolds and normal forms in cosmology
- Modified gravity
