Talks and Lectures

In Summer 2011, I delivered a 6-hour lecture series ("crash course") on planet formation theory for the International Summer Institute for Modeling in Astrophysics program hosted by the Kavli Institute in Beijing, China. The lectures were half blackboard and half slides. PDFs of the slides are below.

Subsets of these lectures were given for other international schools, including the Jerusalem Winter School on "Low-Mass Stars and Their Planets" in 2006 at Hebrew University, and the International Planetary School in 2005 at Kobe University, Japan.

  • Lecture 1: Observations of Extrasolar Planets
  • Lecture 2: Planetesimal Formation and Planet Coagulation
  • Lecture 3: Giant Planets: Formation and Evolution
  • Lecture 4: Planetary Dynamics

    Spring 2012: NOVA Colloquium in the Netherlands (Groningen, Nijmegen, Leiden, Amsterdam)

  • Close-in Planets: From Hot Jupiters to Super-Mercuries

    Recent Colloquia:

  • Planetary Dynamics at the Outer Limits (Debris Disks, Kuiper Belt, Fomalhaut)
  • Planetesimal Formation
  • Accretion in Protoplanetary Disks (Conventional and Transitional)
