My main research focus is on producing realistic models of
star clusters through N-body simulations.
This necessarily involves combining algorithms to deal
with stellar, binary and dynamical evolution.
The resulting models are compared with the latest observations
to improve our understanding of how clusters form, evolve
and produce their stellar populations.
