It looks like I will soon be wrapping up the thermophysical modeling of Ivar &

I am also starting the shape modeling of 2003 YT1




 My paper has been accepted for publication in Icarus!

My poster won the 2017 Asia Oceania Geosciences Society's (AOGS) Best Student Poster Competition for Planetary Sciences!  There were many wonderful posters there.  Check out those that won in other sections here.

 Thank you SSERVI  for making it possible for me to go!


It is still awesome how much we can do with ground based observations.  Using radar and lightcurve data, we can get a pretty good idea of the shape of an asteroid.  With near-IR, we can then map out homogeneity on the surface.  With ground based observations, we can map out an asteroid that we have never gone to before and describe it is such astonishing detail.
