As a science fiction-loving astronomer, I enjoy blending imagination with science. Sometimes I create my own planetary systems (see for example, the ultimate Solar System series). Sometimes I evaluate the scientific validity of well-known settings from movies or books (such as Pandora, Arrakis, and more). And sometimes I try to figure out what it would feel like on a different planet, for example by understanding the day-night cycles in multi-star systems or by getting a feel for the climates of exotic worlds.
I am available to help out with ideas for books, movies, games or any other projects set on other planets. My specialties are:
- World building: creating scientifically accurate settings for storytelling
- Understanding what it would feel like to live on other (custom-built) worlds. How would the stars move? What would the weather be like?
- Testing the scientific validity of already-created settings.
