Visiting Scholar (FSC)
TEMPE Campus


Shaig Nabiyev is an associate professor at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU. His research interests are focused on the dynamical evolution of the planetary system. In particular, the dynamical relations of small bodies of Solar System with themselves and the Giant Planets as well as Trans Neptunian Objects. He studies the physical properties of Trans Neptunian Objects by theoretically and experimentally to find out the answer to question what is physics behind of color diversification of those bodies in the spectra?
