In a new paper, recently published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, we report near-infrared spectroscopic observations of one of the largest potentially hazardous asteroids, (214869) 2007 PA8. Mineralogical analysis of this object was followed by the investigation of the dynamical delivery mechanism from its probable source region, based on long-term numerical integrations.

In a second paper published in 2014 in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics we investigate Taurid Complex, a massive stream of material in the inner part of the Solar System considered by some authors to have a common cometary origin. The asteroids belonging to Taurid Complex are on Apollo type orbit, with most of them being flagged as potentially hazardous asteroids.
