Profile: Prof. Tom Jones

I do research in theoretical and computational astrophysics, mainly addressing problems associated with very energetic phenomena and their impact on the universe. My students and I carry out large fluid dynamical simulations including specially developed routines to follow the microphysics responsible for the emission we observe from such astronomical objects as supernova remnants, active galaxies and clusters of galaxies. Our calculations can be compared directly with observational data to test basic theories about the origins of these objects.
