Dr Thomas Bending

Postdoctoral Research Fellow


I am part of the ICYBOB research group (PI Clare Dobbs) funded by the European research council.

I study how stellar feedback processes - particularly photoionisation and supernovae from massive stars (> 18 M​⊙) - affect large-scale star formation, inter-stellar medium composition, stellar clustering, and galaxy evolution. Find my publications here.

I also have a keen interest in high-performance computing. I follow the state of the art in Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics, I enjoy parallelising and optimising code, and implementing models of stellar feedback physics.
