Scientific interests:

  • Solar System physics, planet dynamics and numerical celestial mechanics.
  • Numerical N-body simulations and planet formation.
  • Stability of telluric planets within the habitable zone in extrasolar planetary systems.
  • Observation and astrometry of minor planet and satellites in the Solar System.
  • Dynamical aspects of giant planet irregular satellites.
  • Modeling circumbinary light-travel time effect and dynamics/stability of circumbinary planetary systems.
  • Observations and modeling of transiting extra-solar planets.
  • Detection of additional extrasolar planets via TTV/TDV.
  • Observation of extrasolar planets using the microlensing technique, gravitational microlensing within the PLANET/MiNDSTEp collaboration.
