My current research focus on looking at traces in the dust that stemmed from debris discs around stars to understand details about the formation and evolution of planetary systems. I am currently analysing all relevant archival Herschel/Spitzer data to extract photometry and derive various parameters of debris discs. Additionally, I'm interested in chemical and dynamical evolution in planetary systems, dust formation, and its role in planetary environments and habitability in exoplanetary systems. My work also extends to applying radiative transfer simulations and SPH simulations to circumstellar disks around main-sequence stars and managing extensive data like the Herschel debris disk and MIDAS/Rosetta dust particle catalogues.

Additionally, I am the ESA project lead working on the dust of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko collected by Rosetta/MIDAS ("Primitiveness of cometary dust collected by MIDAS on-board Rosetta", Contract No. 4000129476), in particular concerning the morphology at the micro- to nanometre scale to understand comets and dust growth in the early Solar System.
