About Konstantin Batygin's Work
My research is primarily aimed at understanding the formation and evolution of planetary systems. My work spans a wide range of topics related to the conglomeration of the solar system, orbital dynamics of exoplanets, as well as magnetic coupling between planetary interiors and weakly ionized atmospheres. My recent theoretical work on the trans-Neptunian region of the solar system points to the existence of an additional, as yet unseen planet in orbit around the sun.
