My Research


I am interested in answering basic questions about the origin and evolution of small bodies in the solar system. These include:

  • The origin of metoroids (comets/asteroids/interstellar and what proportion of each?)
  • Origin of meteorites (asteroid belt, mostly, but where specifically?)
  • Physical structure of meteoroids (bulk density/dustballs - what does this say about their origin?)
  • Flux and interaction of larger meteoroids at Earth (meteorites, breakup in the atmosphere)
