Further information


Matt North started in research at Southampton University where he gained his MPhil studying Active Galactic Nuclei and disk-wind driving signatures under the supervision of Christian Knigge and Mike Goad. He continued his research at UCL where he gained his PhD, under the supervision of Professor Ian Howarth and Professor Raman Prinja, modelling the emergent spectra from rapidly rotating B stars, challenging the apparent observation that Be stars rotate with substantially sub-critical velocities.

Having subsequently been out of research for family reasons, in August of 2014 he was awarded a 3 year Daphne Jackson Fellowship, funded by the STFC, and joined Surrey Astrophysics in September to begin studying, via NBODY simulations, the dynamics of young stellar clusters and the production of OB-runaways.
