I am a lecturer at the School of Maths and Physics of Queen’s University Belfast. I also do research in solar system astronomy at the Astrophysics Research Centre.

At the moment, I teach 1st year students in the subjects of Mathematics and Laboratory Physics.

My research work deals with physical properties of small bodies of the solar system, mainly Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) and comets.  I also collaborate with medievalist Marilina Cesario to link medieval records of comet sightings to current theories of the evolution of the solar system.

  1. Pedro, I’m so proud of your accomplishments. I remember how happy you were one time when you scored a 19 in an undergrad course in Lisbon. I also remember you sleeping in my garage one night! I’ll follow your career because I’m still expecting a Nobel Prize…..
