The group is involved in a number of projects involving star and planet formation (including formation of molecular clouds, the dynamics and evolution of disks around young single and binary stars, the early stages of planet growth from mircons to metres, and the effects of planets on the evolution of protostellar disks); stellar dynamics and evolution (N-body simulations of star cluster evolution and destruction, formation of exotic stars and binaries); and binary population synthesis.

These research projects involve a mix of numerical simulations and observations at a range of wavelengths from infrared, through to millimetre and centimetre.
