Prof. Smadar Naoz is interested in a broad range of topics in theoretical astrophysics with an emphasis on dynamical research problems from cosmology to extrasolar planets. Her main research subject during her PhD was the first generation of galaxies and 21cm fluctuations. She is also very interested in the theoretical challenges and problems in the dynamics of our solar and extra-solar planetary systems. For the past few years she has studied the dynamical evolution of Hot Jupiters. You can read more about her research group here.
