Tim Harries Homepage
Welcome to Tim Harries' homepage. I am an Associate Professor in Astronomy at the School of Physics at the University of Exeter.
Exeter is home to the 3-dimensional radiative-transfer code, TORUS, which is either an acronym for Transport of Radiation Under Sobolev, or Transport of Radiation Using Stokes.
The structure of circumstellar discs
TORUS uses an adaptive mesh refinement scheme and a Monte-Carlo method to solve for the radiative equilibrium, hydrostatic equilibrium, and dust sublimation in circumstellar discs around both low and high-mass pre-main-sequence stars.
Magnetospheric accretion: observations and models
We have both a modelling and
observational programme into accretion flows onto pre-main-sequence
stars and brown dwarfs.
I wrote this review of my research into stellar spectropolarimetry for a meeting on Stellar Astrophysics with the World's Largest Telescopes held in Torun, Poland in Sep 2004.
