Associate Professor of Physics
A/Prof Kuncic leads a highly interdisciplinary research program at the interface between the physical and life sciences. Physics-based strategies (experimental as well as theoretical and computational modelling approaches) and fundamental physical principles are applied to advance our understanding of complex living systems and human diseases.
Astrophysics and Space Science
Astrophysical accretion (including radiation magnetohydrodynamics, MHD turbulence); High-energy astrophysics and relativistic jets (x-ray/gamma-ray emission mechanisms in white dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes). Stochastic plasma waves in planetary bow shocks; Solar system radio bursts and space weather.
