About the Hamilton Grouop

Andrew Hamilton photo.

My research is theoretical, and my principal interests include black holes, cosmology, and supernovae. My black hole work focuses on general relativistic visualization. My cosmological work concentrates mainly on devising and applying methods to analyze large observational data sets, notably galaxy surveys, with a view to extracting cosmological parameters and other fundamental properties of the Universe.

Research Areas

What really happens inside black holes? The aim of this website is to take you to the frontier of what is known.

This is a general relativistic visualization of a supercomputed magneto-hydrodynamic simulation of a disk and jet around a black hole. The disk and jet were supercomputed by John Hawley at the University of Virginia. The general relativistic rendering was done with the Black Hole Flight Simulator.
