Protoplanetary disc evolution

Cathie Clarke leads a group that studies the hydrodynamics of (potentially planet bearing) discs around young stars – recent focuses include the evolution of dust and gas in self-gravitating discs and the issue of disc photoevaporation by Xrays from the young star. Many of the projects relate to finding innovative ways of incorporating radiative physics within hydrodynamical codes.
