Matthew Coleman studies accretion in astrophysical systems. His work focuses on accreting white dwarfs, in particular Dwarf novae and AM CVn–type systems. Ionization instabilities arising from within these accretion disks lead to observable outbursts, providing an excellent means of confronting accretion disk theory with observations.
