AthenaCodeAthena Code Development

I am a member of the development team for the magnetohydrodynamics code, Athena. The code has been used in a variety of applications, including studies of turbulence in disks, star formation processes, growth of dust grains into planetesimals, and astrophysical jets.

My contributions to Athena include algorithm development for disk physics, such as the shearing box module, ambipolar diffusion, and a self-gravity solver for the particle integration module.
