Matthew Liska is a computational astrophysicist with an interdisciplinary interest in astrophysics, plasma physics and computation. He is the main developer of the world's first GPU accelerated GRMHD code ("H-AMR") which he uses to study especially challenging problems in black hole accretion and plasma physics. These include (tilted) accretion disks, large scale jets, tidal disruption events, binary mergers and the generation of large scale magnetic fields. As a John Harvard fellow he is currently leading the development of a new radiative transfer module for H-AMR, which will be used to study black hole state transitions and binary merger remnant disks at record breaking resolutions and for unprecedented runtimes.
