Jonathan P. Marshall

Postdoctoral fellow, UNSW Sydney

I am currently associated with the University of Southern Queensland in Toowooba. My research primarily deals with interpretation of far-infrared and sub-millimetre observations of debris disks -- dusty rings of rock and ice around stars like our sun -- that are evidence for planet formation around their host stars. The main goal of my research is linking these structures to the properties of the planetary system as a whole (star, planet(s), and debris).
