Prof Tom Marsh

I lead the Astronomy & Astrophysics group in the Department of Physics at Warwick. My research interests are accretion in, and the evolution of, binary stars. I am also interested in the observational techniques needed to study these objects. My major project of the last few years has been use and exploitation of ULTRACAM, a high-speed CCD camera. I am currently working on a ERC-funded successor instrument, HiPERCAM which has larger CCDs and five bands. My work touches on the area of gravitational waves as the objects I study are thought to be amongst the strongest emitters for the proposed space-based GRW detector, LISA.
