Dr. James Wurster

Last updated: May 2021
I am a Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews.

My current research includes investigating the effect non-ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) processes have on star formation and on the formation and evolution of protostellar discs. Details are summarised on my Research page and animations can be viewed on my YouTube Channel.

My technical expertise is in computational astrophysics, including code development (specifically the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics, SPH, method), performing large (magneto-)hydrodynamical simulations, and analysing and interpreting large data sets.
