Thomas CornetPlanetary Scientist
Main Research Fields
My main research field deals with the physico-chemical characterization of planetary surfaces and their evolution.
I am particularly interested in the surface processes affecting the icy moons of Saturn and Jupiter, especially Saturn's major moon Titan, and more recently Mercury. My research encompasses several fields such as comparative planetology, thermodynamics of solid-liquid equilibrium modeling, landscape evolution modeling, infrared spectroscopy and photometry analyses, radiative transfer modeling, radar SAR modeling, ...
