Sean Febuary completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Cape Town. Brief description of his work: The growth of cosmic structure (e.g. galaxies, clusters thereof) is poorly understood in inhomogeneous cosmological models. Such models were originally proposed in the literature as an attempt to explain observations (e.g. distances to type Ia supernova) without dark energy. In this work, we solved - for the first time - the full set of coupled partial differential equations that describe the evolution of linear perturbations about a large spherically symmetric underdense region of spacetime (i.e. a void). We showed that the evolution of the density contrast is well approximated by the previously studied decoupled evolution only on very large scales. However, the evolution of the gravitational potentials within the void is inaccurate at more than the 10% level, and is even worse on small scales.
