Eugene Chiang, Professor
http://astron.berkeley.edu/~echiang/
Chiang and his collaborators have research interests in theoretical astrophysics, with an emphasis on understanding the origin and evolution of planetary systems, both extrasolar and solar. Current research areas include:

  • The Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt
  • Extrasolar Debris Disks
  • Protoplanetary Disks
  • Extrasolar Planetary Dynamics
  • Planetary Rings
  • Planet and planetesimal formation

Imke de Pater, Professor
http://astron.berkeley.edu
De Pater's primary interest is planetary science. Current research areas include:

  • Adaptive Optics Imaging on Uranus, Neptune, Titan, Io, and asteroids
  • Radio Observations of Jupiter's synchrotron radiation, comets and giant planet atmospheres using VLA and BIMA (and soon: ATA and CARMA)
  • Taiwan American Occultation Survey of Kuiper Belt objects (TAOS) and in the outer Solar System (KBO)
  • Red Spot, Jr. (a collaborative project with Phil Marcus, UC Berkeley)

Máté Ádámkovics, Postdoctoral Researcher
http://astro.berkeley.edu/~madamkov/
Ádámkovics studies Titan's atmosphere and surface using near-infrared spectroscopy.
