K. Poppenhaeger

I am a Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. This fall I will join the Astrophysics faculty at Queen's University Belfast. I am interested in how exoplanets form, how they develop over time, and how all of this is influenced by the high-energy radiation that is produced by the host stars of these exoplanets. I work a lot with space telescopes to perform observations in X-rays and in the ultraviolet; I also use ground-based telescopes to collect high-resolution spectra.
