    have gone to or used data from the Very Large Array in the USA the Giant Metre Wave Radio Telescope in India the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope in Hawaii the Nobeyama mm Wave array in Japan the Arecibo Telescope in Puerto Rico and the space based Infra Red Satellite Observatory and XMM Newton Kayll Lake General Relativity Computer Algebra Prof Lake s works in general relativity and the application of general relativity to astrophysics He is best known for his development of GRTensor an abstract computer system for doing calculations in general relativity and string theory Kristine Spekkens RMC Structure and Evolution of Nearby Galaxies Kristine Spekkens research focuses on understanding of the structure and evolution of nearby galaxies in a cosmological context She is spearheading a variety of projects to help reconcile long standing discrepancies between the observed properties of spiral galaxies and predictions from galaxy formation theory and is particularly interested in developing robust techniques for inferring the distribution of dark matter in these systems Dr Spekkens is also involved in planning surveys with the next generation of radio telescopes to map the distribution and kinematics of atomic hydrogen in galaxies in diverse environments out to moderate redshifts Dr Spekkens program thus affords graduate students the opportunity to carry out research with the world s largest radio and optical telescopes and to develop new tools for interpreting the high quality data obtained from these facilities Gregg Wade RMC Stellar Structure and Magnetic Fields Spectro Polarimetry Gregg Wade s research is aimed mainly at understanding magnetic fields in stars how they are structured how they influence the stellar plasma in which they are embedded how they evolve and where they came from in the first place His approach is primarily observational exploiting powerful telescopes and spectropolarimetric instrumentation at observatories around the world Larry Widrow Dark Matter Galaxy Models Extragalactic Magnetic Fields Larry Widrow works in the field of theoretical astrophysics and cosmology and has focused on problems related to the nature of dark matter the formation of structure in the Universe and cosmic magnetic fields His research interests also include the structure and dynamics of disk galaxies such as the Milky Way and M31 as studied through theoretical modelling and numerical simulation Why do some galaxies have bars What happens when galaxies collide What is the energy distribution of dark matter passing through a terrestrial detector These are just some of the problems explored by Widrow and his students Back to top Postdoctoral Fellows Theresa Wiegert Works with Judith Irwin on the CHANGES project Back to top Doctoral Students Bill Ballick Works with Kayll Lake Matthew Chequers Works with Larry Widrow on Oscillations of the Galactic Disk Alexandre David Uraz Works with Gregg Wade Dmitri Lebedev Works with Kayll Lake Colin Lewis Works with Kristine Spekkens on modelling the morphologies and kinematics of nearby disk galaxies Nathalie Ouellette Works with Stéphane Courteau on the Dynamical Properties of Virgo Cluster Galaxies Matt Shultz Works with Gregg Wade Jonathan Sick Works
