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.
