Biographical Info

I study the formation of planets, their interiors and planetary orbital dynamics. My goal is to determine how formation and orbital interactions influence the population of rocky exoplanets in terms of orbital and physical properties. I am also interested in the implications of these findings on exoplanet habitability. I depend primarily on numerical simulations of orbital dynamics and planetary interiors with the occasional use of observations of solar system and extra-solar bodies.
