  • Brief Bio

    Joe Renaud studies the interior of rocky solar system moons & exoplanets. He models the thermal-orbital evolution of these bodies as they evolve due to tidal forces.

    Research Interests

    Tidal Dynamics

    Study of how tidal forces influence the interior and orbits of solar system moons and exoplanets.
