Dr Dimitri Veras

I am an astrophysicist who researches the contents of planetary systems (including our own) in a wide variety of contexts, across both time and space. I have published academic articles about forming, destroying and evolving planets, asteroids, moons and comets while they interact with their parent star or stars.

You can view (or listen toLink opens in a new window) some media attention regarding different aspects of my work from BBC Science FocusLink opens in a new window, The IndependentLink opens in a new window, National Geographic 1Link opens in a new window, National Geographic 2Link opens in a new window, The Conversation 1Link opens in a new window, The Conversation 2Link opens in a new window, ForbesLink opens in a new window, Physics TodayLink opens in a new window, New Scientist 1Link opens in a new window, New Scientist 2Link opens in a new window, New Scientist 3Link opens in a new window, Huffington PostLink opens in a new window, Universe TodayLink opens in a new window, Astronomy NowLink opens in a new window, The Daily MailLink opens in a new window, and USA TodayLink opens in a new window.

My most significant current research focus is on the **future and fate** of extrasolar asteroids, comets, moons and planets: how they traverse the violent giant branch stellar evolution phases and "pollute" these stars after they become "white dwarfs". The Sun will become a giant branch star and then white dwarf, and might very well be polluted by asteroids, comets or even planets such as the Earth!Fate of planetary systems

The fate of a planetary system as the host star becomes a violent giant branch star and then a dense ember known as a white dwarf. Artistry © Mark A.

I am an Associate Professor and STFC Ernest Rutherford FellowLink opens in a new window working in the exoplanet, white dwarf, disc-based and space satellites/astrodynamics research groups here at the University of Warwick; my PhD student is Catriona H. McDonaldLink opens in a new window. I am also a member of the University of Warwick's Centre for Exoplanets and HabitabilityLink opens in a new window and the University of Warwick's Centre for Space Domain AwarenessLink opens in a new window. My biography includes postdoctoral research appointments at the University of CambridgeLink opens in a new window and University of FloridaLink opens in a new window. I obtained my PhD at the University of Colorado at BoulderLink opens in a new window, and my Bachelor's degree at Yale UniversityLink opens in a new window.


Prospective PhD students:

----I currently am not able to fund any PhD students. If you can self-fund your PhD and are interested in working with me, then please note that my projects are simulation-based, theory-based and analytics-based, and address the physical, dynamical or chemical properties of asteroids, planets or discs orbiting violent giant branch stars and white dwarfs (please see my papers below before getting in touch at [dimitri.veras (at) colorado.edu]).


In addition to research, I have a keen interest in maps, and have created an Astronomy Map of the WorldLink opens in a new window containing 742 institutes, as well as a map of the UK Astronomical SocietiesLink opens in a new window.

Please click on the titles of the papers below to obtain pre-published drafts. Highlights include two invited review papers that help summarize the field of exoplanetary system fates covering: (1) all aspects of planetary systems around white dwarfsLink opens in a new window up until 2021, and (2) all theoretical work on giant branch, white dwarf and pulsar planetary systemsLink opens in a new window up until 2016. Also, for a shorter, more publicly accessible read, see my Nature Astronomy News & ViewsLink opens in a new window summary which links the fate of planetary systems to the popular interstellar interloper ‘Oumuamua.
