Introduction of Research
My research interest is the interior structure and the evolution of solid planets and satellites.
Pluto's ocean is capped and insulated by gas hydrates, Nature Geoscience, 12, 407–410.
Interior thermal state of Enceladus inferred from the viscoelastic state of the ice shell, Icarus, 284, 387–393.
Reorientation and faulting of Pluto due to volatile loading within Sputnik Planitia, Nature, 540, 90–93.
Tidal resonance in icy satellites with subsurface oceans, J. Geophys. Res. Planets, 120, 1528–1542.
The relative timing of Lunar Magma Ocean solidification and the Late Heavy Bombardment inferred from highly degraded impact basin structures, Icarus, 250, 492–503.
