Welcome!

My name is Philip Mocz. I am a graduate student at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University working with Lars Hernquist. I currently work on inventing new, more robust and accurate numerical methods for solving the MHD equations on a moving-mesh in the AREPO code. I've developed the first numerical method for MHD which preserves mass, momentum, energy, the divergence-free property of the magnetic fields, and Galilean-invariance. I am interested in galaxy evolution and feedback, black hole physics, structure formation, and turbulence in the ISM.
