Abstract

In this talk I will give an
introduction to some of my research into modified gravity over the last three
years. I will begin by describing my implementation of chameleon models into
supersymmetry and discuss some of the new features and cosmology that arise
in this formalism. I will then change direction and talk about my work
using astrophysical effects as novel probes of modified gravity theories
and present some new results on modified gravity stellar oscillation theory.
I will end by discussing work in progress and the possible future
constraints that could be placed.
