Dr Pedro Lacerda

Research Fellow


Queen's University of Belfast

Research summary

I study physical properties of small solar system objects, namely Kuiper belt objects, Centaurs, comets, and Trojan and main-belt asteroids. In particular I am interested in the rotational properties of these bodies and what can be learned from them, and on the interrelationships between different populations.
