A great part of my work consists in studying the tidal evolution of planetary systems around all kind of different objects: from brown dwarfs to Sun-like stars.

Dynamical evolution

I have designed a module for John Chambers's Mercury code, which allows to compute the tidal evolution of multi-planet systems: Mercury-T (the code is available to everyone, Bolmont et al. 2015).

The successor of Mercury-T is here! Its name is Posidonius (the paper is in prep, but there is a proceeding: Blanco-Cuaresma & Bolmont, 2017)

What interests me too is that tides have an influence on orbital parameters and planetary characteristics which determine the climate of a planet. I plan to study these links using the data from tidal dynamical evolution and global climate models.
