Terrence's research focuses on modelling the magnetospheres of compact objects, and their interactions within binary systems. To this end, he has been developing a code that will evolve the equations of General Relativistic Force Free Electrodynamics, which represent the regime where the dynamics of matter are dominated by magnetic fields, e.g. tenuous plasmas in magnetospheres. He is also working towards developing a code that will model binary neutron star mergers.

Year started the program: 2019
Year of expected graduation: 2024

Advisor: Prof. Zack Etienne
