I'm interested in the life cycle of comets, from activation in the centaur region through to their deactivation and dormancy among the near-Earth objects. My work primarily uses imaging and spectroscopic observations of comets, centaurs, and comet-candidates at optical and near-infrared wavelengths with ground-based telescopes, and has recently incorporated some orbital dynamics as well.
Take a look at my website, it's got more information about me, my research, and other helpful things. (Plus I update it a little bit more often than this page!)
