Revealing the Nature of Exoplanet Atmospheres
Thousands of exoplanets have been discovered. From blistering hot Jupiters down to rocky super-Earths, the new frontier in our quest to understand these strange new worlds is the characterisation of their atmospheres.
I am an exoplanet astronomer at Cornell University’s Carl Sagan Institute. Using telescopes on the ground and in space, I investigate what the atmospheres of truly alien worlds are made of, offering new insights into the diversity of planets in our galactic neighbourhood.
