Very pleased to announce that our research on binary stars and transients was awarded ERC Starting grant with project Cat-In-hAT: Catastrophic Interactions of Binary Stars and the Associated Transients.
Starting in Fall, we will be looking for postdocs and PhD student in the general areas of computational astrophysics, numerical modeling, (magneto)hydrodynamics, radiation transport etc. Stay tuned for more information.
To celebrate Gaia DR2 (where Michał Pawlak played a role as a member of Gaia team), we made special science coffee with a Gaia cake (Galactic plane and LMC & SMC – apricots, dark matter substructure – baked-in cherries).
Michał Pawlak helped create the first catalog of variable stars from ASAS-SN. Full version of the paper led by Tharindu Jayasinghe is available as arXiv:1803.01001. More variable stars are coming soon!
