Planet Formation Group

Welcome to my Planet Formation Group in the School of Physics at the University of Bristol. The group focuses on the formation and evolution of planets and small bodies, such as asteroids and comets through the use of numerical simulations.  For more detailed descriptions of our ongoing projects please see the group's research page. Within the School of Physics our group is part of the Astrophysics Group. We also work closely with the Geophysics Group in the School of Earth Sciences.


Current Group Members

Dr. Zoë Leinhardt (Dr. Leinhardt's CV and Publications), Mr. Jack Dobinson (2nd year postgrad) and Mr. Stefan Lines (1st year postgrad)


Previous Group Members

John-Mark Allen (summer student 2011, currently completing Part III Maths at Cambridge)

Jane Hesling (summer student 2012, currently 2nd year Physics MSci at Bristol)

Wilfred Calder-Potts (summer student 2012, currently 2nd year Physics MSci at Bristol)


Future Group Members

We are currently looking for a postgraduate researcher interested in the collisional evolution of small bodies to join our group in Autumn 2013. This position will be joint between the School of Physics at the University of Bristol and the Earth and Planetary Science Department at Harvard University. Applications will be due in mid-February. Please contact Dr. Leinhardt via email (Zoe.Leinhardt@bristol.ac.uk) for more information.
