Impact cratering is a common process in the solar system that plays an important role in the evolution of the solar system and surfaces of planetary bodies. The nature of planetary bodies can be explored by studying impacts they had experienced, whether the impacts are on a micro or macro scale.

I am a planetary scientist with expertise in both the numerical and the experimental impact physics. My main interests include: the understanding of geophysics of planetary bodies, including the Earth, through impact processes; and the studies of impact and shock physics applied to geologic materials.

Currently, I am a post-doc working with Mark Wieczorek on NASA's lunar gravity mapping mission GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, visit http://www.nasa.gov/grail and http://grail.nasa.gov for more info), with emphasis on lunar craters and basins. This study includes comparison of the GRAIL gravity data with numerical impact modelling in iSALE hydrocode. My post-doc work is funded by UnivEarthS LabEx.
