Pablo Benitez-Llambay receives Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship

Pablo Benitez-Llambay

NBIA postdoc Pablo Benitez-Llambay has received a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship to support his research program entitled "New Frontiers in Modeling Planet-Disk Interactions". Pablo received his PhD in Astronomy from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina in December 2015 and joined the NBIA as a postdoc in the Theoretical Astrophysics group in July 2016. Pablo's research focuses on studying the processes that determine the large-scale dynamics of planetary embryos as they interact with the protoplanetary disk in which they form. This fellowship will allow Pablo to explore the impact of more detailed physics on planet migration processes, with the potential to produce a leap forward in our understanding of how planetary orbits evolve. Pablo's goal is not only to produce better models to understand exoplanets observations but also to improve current formation models of our own Solar System.
