I used to work for the Space and Atmospheric Physics group at Imperial College (London, England), and before that in the Theoretical Astrophysics Center based in the Astronomy Group of the University of Aarhus (Denmark). Before that I used to work in the Uppsala Astronomical Observatory (Sweden), and at Queen Mary and Westfield College (now QMUL) before that.

- For who is interested in the use of stellar oscillations in determining their interior structure, here is some introductory reading. A rather more extensive source of information, but also more difficult to read is the collection of J. Christensen-Dalsgaard's Oscillation Lecture Notes
- Some lecture notes on turbulence.
- Some lecture notes on astrophysical
fluid dynamics (
*pdf format ~9Mb*), also available as gzipped ps format (~5Mb) Note that some figures are still missing and these lecture notes will be updated occasionally, latest update : 03-04-2004).
