Brigham Young University
Professor of Physics
Darin is a long-time member of the Solar System Science Collaboration, working on the outer solar system and interstellar objects. He is particularly interested in basic and advanced dynamical characterization of solar system small bodies (especially binaries and multiples) and has recently received NASA support to develop a new tool in this regard. He is a recognized expert in solar system and exoplanet orbital dynamics. He has mentored a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate students and has supported postdocs in both scientific endeavors and career advice. He has expertise (from his research on exoplanets) in advanced astrostatistical techniques such as Bayesian inference and hierarchical modeling.
