The accretion disc eclipse mapping method is an astrotomographic inversion technique that makes use of the information contained in eclipse light curves to probe the structure, the spectrum and the time evolution of accretion discs in cataclysmic variables. This paper presents examples of eclipse mapping results that have been key to improve our understanding of accretion physics. 
Photometric mode identification methods of non‐radial pulsations in eclipsing binaries – I. Dynamic eclipse mapping
We present the dynamic eclipse mapping method designed specifically to reconstruct the surface intensity patterns of non-radial stellar oscillations on components of eclipsing binaries. The methodExpand
Discovery of deep eclipses in the cataclysmic variable IPHAS J013031.89+622132.3
Abstract I performed photometric observations of the poorly studied cataclysmic variable IPHAS J013031.89+622132.3 and discovered very deep eclipses. I obtained observations over 14 nights for aExpand
High Time Resolution Observations of Cataclysmic Variables
Cataclysmic Variables (CVs) show a wide range of time-dependent phenomena which make them ideal objects of study with high time-resolution instruments. The most rapid timescales observed in CVs areExpand
Vortices in Thin, Compressible, Unmagnetized Disks
We consider the formation and evolution of vortices in a hydrodynamic shearing-sheet model. The evolution is done numerically using a version of the ZEUS code. Consistent with earlier results, anExpand
Discovery of deep eclipses in the cataclysmic variable ZTF17aaaeefu (2MASS J00594349+6454419)
I performed photometric observations of the cataclysmic variable candidate ZTF17aaaeefu and discovered very deep eclipses. The observations were obtained over 8 nights covering 7 months. The eclipseExpand
