Stellar Hydrodynamics

Together with Paul Woodward and his group we are investigating stellar interior convection with nuclear burning at Damköhler numbers ~1, i.e. nuclear burn time scale and convective mixing time scale are similar. The ultimate goal is to develop a better understanding of convective mixing in stellar evolution, and the formation of the elements in the first generations of stars, where this nucleosynthesis and hydrodynamics regime is believed to be important.
