Active areas of research include characterizing distant Solar System bodies through stellar occultations (e.g. monitoring Pluto’s and Triton's evolving atmospheres and placing size and atmospheric constraints on trans-Neptunian objects, studying Centaur environments (rings, jets, and comae), and observing exoplanet transits. Other areas of interest include dusty plasmas, with applications to near-surface planetary environments such as the Moon and asteroids, and building instruments for ground-based telescopes.
