My interest lies in interaction in binary stars. In the BinCosmos project, I model envelope stripping in binary systems using the stellar evolution code MESA. I also tailormake model spectra for the stripped stars using the radiative transfer code CMFGEN. This I do in close collaboration with Dr. José Groh.
In the BinCosmos project we work to establish the significance of binary stars throughout cosmic time. My role stretches from nearby stellar population up to high redshift.
We are part of Selma de Mink's group working theoretically on binary stars in Amsterdam.
We work with various codes:
