HPC with the AMR MHD code FLASH

Comparison between simulations and observations:

Post-processing of 3D MHD simulations with radiative transfer codes

(e.g. RADMC-3D) to obtain synthetic emission maps.

So far the study is focussed on synthetic [CII] line emission.

3D simulations of the turbulent interstellar medium, focusing upon the behavior of non-isothermal gas under the influence of driven turbulence.

3D MHD simulations, comparing simulated observations with multiwavelength observations

I am using 3D MHD numerical simulations to understand how the interplay between several physical and chemical processes (e.g. turbulence, self-gravity, stellar feedback, magnetic fields, radiative heating and cooling) influences the dynamical evolution of the interstellar medium of galaxies, with a particular interest in the dynamical properties and evolution of molecular clouds.
