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.
