John Harvard & ITC Fellow


Matthew Liska is a computational astrophysicist with an interdisciplinary interest in astrophysics, plasma physics and computation. He is the main developer of the world's first GPU accelerated GRMHD code ("H-AMR") which he uses to study especially challenging problems in black hole accretion and plasma physics. These include (tilted) accretion disks, large scale jets, tidal disruption events, binary mergers and long duration gamma-ray bursts. As a John Harvard fellow he is currently leading the development of a new radiative transfer module for H-AMR and uses it to study black hole state transitions at record breaking resolution on (pre-)exascale supercomputers.
