Garvin Yim is a PhD student within the Gravity Group of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Prior to coming to University of Southampton, my MPhys project involved studies into the radio emission mechanism from pulsars. My MPhys was completed at the University of Manchester (and Jodrell Bank Observatory) and was supervised by Dr. Patrick Weltevrede. In particular, I investigated how the fan-beam model could be used to fit pulse profiles in order to determine a pulsar’s viewing geometry.

In the Summer of 2016, I also worked with Dr. Patrick Weltevrede for a summer research placement. I investigated how the carousel model for pulsar beam patterns could explain the phenomenon of drifting subpulses.
