Research Interests

I am interested in the distribution and origin of meteoroids. In particular:

  • The origin of sporadic meteoroids (particular comets, any asteroidal or interstellar)
  • The physical and chemical properties of meteoroids, as determined from ablation modelling
  • The flux of sporadic meteors near the Earth
