In addition to my research on exoplanets, I spend some of my free time working on small astronomy-related projects. I'll try to keep this page updated with some of them, I hope someone finds them interesting! Please feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about any of these things.
adstex is a small utility I wrote in Python to try to take some of the pain out of finding references for LaTex documents. It allows you to give citations in your LaTex document in a (reasonably) user-friendly, human-readable fashion, which it then tries to pull from ADS without any extra effort on your part. You can check it out on GitHub.
As part of my on-going quest to shove as much astronomy into the browser as possible, I developed a basic, 2D SPH code using Google's DART language. You can view a test simulation here, but be aware that it might consume quite a lot of your computer's resources. The code itself has artificial viscosity and uses the Wendland kernels. It decomposes the domain into a 2D, regular grid for neighbour finding (displayed in red). It's not the best SPH implementation on the planet - I had to throw out some of the finer points of the algorithm to get it running at a reasonable speed, but it was an interesting toy to work on.
Exoplanet visualisation video
Back in 2014, I used the Open Exoplanet Catalogue to produce this visualisation video of all (then-known) exoplanets around single stars.
