Viranga Perera | The Amazing Story of the Moon

Dr. Viranga Perera is a planetary physicist and a science education researcher. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Johns Hopkins University. He uses principles in physics along with computer codes to study planetary bodies such as the Moon and asteroids. He is primarily interested in how the Moon cooled over time after having formed in the aftermath of a giant impact and how granular material move on asteroids such as via the Brazil Nut Effect. He is also active in science education research where he focuses on how factors such as students’ attitudes and emotions may affect their learning.
