Welcome to my academic webpage. My research interests primary lie in the field of planetary astrophysics. I am fascinated by a wide range of problems related to the formation and evolution of the solar system, dynamical evolution of exoplanets, as well as physical processes that occur in planetary interiors and atmospheres. Check out Research and Publications to find out more about what I do, and click on Group to meet my group of students and postdocs.
