My research focuses on constraining the formation and migration mechanisms of giant extra-solar planets and brown dwarfs in young and dusty circumstellar environments (e.g. proto-planetary disks). For that, I use high angular/contrast imaging/spectroscopy techniques.
Fields of interests:
- Planets and Star Formation (Exoplanets, Brown Dwarfs, Disks)
- High Contrast Imaging, Adaptive Optics, Coronagraphy
- Astronomical Instrumentation and Observing Techniques/Strategies
Research as a team player: I am part of a number of small to large teams and enjoy collaborative work very much. Observational astronomy is global and requires facilities which are onerous. We cannot each answer a little question independently. We have to get together as a community (or pieces of it) and work towards answering pertinent questions.
