Orbital Dynamics, Small Bodies

Major Advisor(s): Erik Asphaug

From modelling the dynamics of millions of pebbles ejecting from asteroid Bennu and calculating their potential for impact at Earth with the OSIRIS-REx mission (publication in press), to predicting the spread of thousands of asteroid family members over a billion years at the Côte D'Azur Observatory (Nice, France), I utilise and develop orbital integration software to answer questions about our solar system.
