    Research Interests

      The main topic of my research up to now can be summarized as characterization of planetary systems, involving investigations of exo-Kuiper belts and extrasolar planets (exoplanets), using observational studies of thermal emission and scattering/polarization properties of dust grains, as well as direct imaging and recovery of spectra of young Jupiter-mass planets and brown dwarfs. More details on my research involvements can be found on my website.
