Phil Armitage

In my work as a theoretical astrophysicist, I focus on problems in fluid dynamics near black holes and in protoplanetary disks. My recent work includes studies of the formation and early evolution of extrasolar planetary systems; numerical simulations of turbulence in black hole accretion flows; and investigation of the astrophysical consequences of binary black hole mergers in galactic nuclei.
