-The main aim of this project is to explore the connection and evoluational ​history of the Centaurs, Kuiper belt, and Inner Oort cloud. This  project will focus on the performing, analyzing, and interpreting observational data from optical ground-based telescopes to study the physical and orbital properties of these  distant Solar System planetesimals as well as searching for cometary activity. The specific project can be tailored to the student’s interests. We expect that the project will focus on monitoring a sample of Centaurs for cometary activity with 1-8-m telescopes and exploring the color diversity within the Inner Oort cloud objects. There are likely to be opportunities with this project for follow-up observations at UK-supported telescopes and observatories around the world.+The main aim of this project is to explore the connection and evolutional ​history of the Centaurs, Kuiper belt, and Inner Oort cloud.

 Our group are members of the Colours of the Outer Solar System Origins Survey (Col-OSSOS),​ a large program gathering near-simultaneous optical and near-infrared photometry with the Gemini North Telescope and the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope of a well characterized sample of ~80 KBOs.  Queen’s University Belfast is a member of both the ATLAS and Pan-STARRS wide-field surveys. ​ We expect this project could involve a component of analyzing follow-up observations based on Col-OSSOS results. An additional component of this project could include mining photometry of Centaurs from the ATLAS survey and other ground-based optical datasets. Our group are members of the Colours of the Outer Solar System Origins Survey (Col-OSSOS),​ a large program gathering near-simultaneous optical and near-infrared photometry with the Gemini North Telescope and the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope of a well characterized sample of ~80 KBOs.  Queen’s University Belfast is a member of both the ATLAS and Pan-STARRS wide-field surveys. ​ We expect this project could involve a component of analyzing follow-up observations based on Col-OSSOS results.
