I am fortunate to have a group of wonderful students working with me on a variety of topics. This website is an overview (and brag sheet!) for many of their projects.
Trevor Dorn-Wallenstein (UW): Time domain variability of massive stars with various surveys
David Fleming (UW): Binary Star Rotation & Tides
Zoë Bell (HMC): Rotation Periods in K2 stars (Summer student project)
Sam Quist (UW): Rotation Periods in K2 stars
Riley Clarke (WWU): Flare Activity of Wide Binary Stars with Kepler (Paper published in ApJ!). Co-author on “The GALEX View of Boyajian’s Star”. Characterizing Quasi-Periodic Pulsations in stellar flares using a Gaussian Process. Riley is now a grad student at the University of Delaware
Matthew Scoggins (WWU): Searching for variations in flare rates in Kepler stars.
Michael Puig-Holzman (UW): Measuring rotation periods in K2 stars
Jamel Adilia (UW): Searching for rotation periods from eclipsing binaries in OGLE.
Riley Clarke presenting his work at WWU Scholars Week 2017
Zachery Laycock (WWU): Searching for stellar activity variations in Mt Wilson stars with GALEX.
My 2016 student collaborators and me after their excellent Scholar’s Week presentation
Austin Boeck (WWU): Searching for connection between flares, starspots, and photometric flicker with Kepler.
Jonathan Cornet (WWU): Comparing flare rates between stars in Kepler.
Riley Clarke (WWU): Flare rates from wide binary stars in the Kepler field.
