Back to staff list


I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at XJTLU (Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University) in Suzhou. Prior to that I was a Bairen research professor at the Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics (KIAA) at Peking University. I am originally from the Netherlands, and have spent time at the Leiden Observatory, the University of Amsterdam, and Sheffield University. My research focuses mainly on the dynamical evolution of planetary systems, binary/multiple systems, and star clusters.
