Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

1) Type I X-Ray bursts - the most common thermonuclear explosions in the universe: Numerical accretion onto neutron stars in binary star system and resulting thermonuclear flashes and other transient phenomena; various project options include nuclear physics at the extreme, gravitational settling and phase separation, accretion physics and multi-dimensional simulations, exploration of new nuclear burning regimes, superbursts and long-duration bursts, modelling of specific systems and accretion outbursts, use of statistical tools and ML for comparison to observations. 2) Stellar rotation in binary and multiple star systems, including star-planet interactions: Follow evolution of orbital parameters and internal rotation due to tidal interactions, mass loss, and mass transfer. 3) Evolution and nucleosynthesis of the first stars: Rotation, binary evolution, radiation feedback for cosmic re-ionisation, production of compact remnants and GW sources, use of ML for comparison with observations, adding models and tools
