My research interests revolve around three main axes: The analysis of planetary gravitational fields and topography, the thermal evolution and interior structure of the Moon and Mars, and the cratering history of the terrestrial planets. I am also participating in several planetary missions, such as NASA's lunar gravity mapping mission GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory), NASA's mission InSight to place a geophysical station on Mars, and the laser altimeter on ESA's BepiColumbo mission to Mercury.
SHTOOLS is an archive of fortran 95 based software for working with data expressed in spherical harmonics.
This archive contains spherical harmonic models of the shape of the Earth, Moon, Mars, and Venus.
This archive contains crustal thickness maps of the Moon derived from GRAIL gravity data.

Farside Explorer is an ESA Cosmic Vision medium-size mission proposal to put two landers on the farside of the Moon and a satellite in an orbit about the Earth-Moon L2 Lagrange point.
