Aaron Boley (CRC in planetary astronomy) is an expert in planet formation and dynamics. His work includes investigating the long-term evolution of planetary systems and their debris (asteroids and comets), observing dust in planetary systems, testing formation mechanisms for meteorite components, and connecting the meteoritic record with planet formation models.

Michael Byers

Michael Byers (CRC in global politics) studies the interplay of international law and international relations, especially with respect to armed force, climate change, the oceans, the Arctic, and most recently space.
