Astrophysics and Planetary Science. Observational imaging and spectroscopy of comets and exoplanets at optical, infrared and mm-wavelengths. Our group's main goal is to constrain physical and chemical models of the origins of planetary systems by obtaining and analyzing data of comets and exoplanets. We perform spectroscopy, interferometry and imaging at optical, infrared and millimeter wavelength telescopes and collaborate with leading atmospheric theorists.
