    Our interests are mainly in the formation and evolution of exo-planetary systems and dynamics of small objects in our Solar system. Mainly research formation mechanism and dynamical evolution of the solar system and extrasolar planetary systems, nonlinear Hamiltonian dynamics theory and its applications in celestial mechanics, orbit and motion stability of small solar-system bodies and satellites and its application in the field of aerospace.
