  • Springer Thesis

    My PhD thesis entitled Amplitude Modulation of Pulsation Modes in Delta Scuti Stars was published by Springer Nature as part of the Springer Theses series in 2017. It includes a comprehensive literature review of amplitude modulation across the HR diagram, and an overview of recent investigations and discoveries involving delta Scuti stars observed by the Kepler Space Telescope.
