Leader of a research team in Astrodynamics, Bonnie conducts research into celestial mechanics, solar system dynamics, stability and chaotic behaviour of stellar clusters, fractals and quaternionic theory. She has refereed papers for six international scientific journals; and successfully supervised seven PhD students. Since 1993 she has been Director of four of the Cortina Series of Advanced Study Institutes (ASIs) for post-doctoral studies in celestial mechanics/astrodynamics – with grants totalling £68k for the 2007 ASI from EPSRC, STFC, ESF, SUPA and SUSSP. She has published over 30 scientific papers, generated over £230k of research income since 2000 and been the co-editor of five graduate textbooks arising from the ASIs. As the sole permanent member of staff in her RAE2008 unit of assessment, Prof Steves was the only small group entry in the UK in Applied Mathematics to receive a world class (4*) and international excellence (3*) rating, with 5% research output rated at each of these top class levels.
