Scott S. Sheppard

I am a faculty member at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Department of Terrestrial Magnetism (DTM) in Washington, DC. My interests are in the formation and evolution of planets and solar systems. To explore this broad topic, I discover and characterize small bodies in our solar system such as asteroids, comets, moons, dwarf planets and other objects in the Kuiper Belt and beyond.
