Professor W K M Rice
Ken is a member of the following School research institute:
My research interests are in theoretical and computational astrophysics . One focus is the evolution of accretion discs and how this relates to the formation of stars and planets. I am particularly interested in accretion discs that are massive enough for their own self-gravity to play a role in their evolution. I also have an interest in the formation and evolution of planets and planetary systems. In particular, I am interested in how planets can migrate very close to their parent stars and what happens to such planets when they do end up in these very close orbits.
