My general research interests are in learning about the origin and evolution of planets. I’m also interested in the ecological system and environment on terrestrial planets.
I use a variety of numerical and analytic methods to examine how the surface environment of planets have been produced, evolved, and been stabilized. Then, I wish I compare these theoretical examinations to observations with telescope.
