Biographical Info

I study the interiors of planets, the structure of proto-planetary disks and circumstellar dusty debris disks, the organization of planetary systems, the formataion history of moons and satellites in the solar system, and the evolution of the Kuiper Belt. Recently, I have been engaged in understanding the Kepler planetary systems, in terms of their internal structure, their dynamics and origins.
