Alice's research includes observational, numerical and theoretical studies of active galactic nuclei, the dynamics of stars and gas in galaxies and the dynamics of planetesimals and gas in protostellar disks. Alice also also been working on understanding planet/disk dynamical interactions to predict the properties of planets and other bodies that reside in circumstellar disks. She also works on accelerating particle integration codes on parallel multicore settings or GPUs (graphics cards).
