The small worlds of the Solar System provide insights into its early history. As a planetary astronomer, I am interested in understanding how they formed, evolved and reached their present orbits. I use wide-field imaging surveys to discover minor planets, and large telescopes to understand their surfaces.
I’m in the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences Te Kura Matū at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.
I’m hiring! See the postdoctoral position here.
