I am fortunate to have a group of wonderful students working with me on a variety of topics. Here is an overview of their projects:
Riley Clarke: 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.
Matthew Scoggins: Searching for variations in flare rates in Kepler stars.
Michael Puig-Holzman: Measuring rotation periods in K2 stars
Jamel Adilia: Searching for rotation periods from eclipsing binaries in OGLE.
Riley Clarke presenting his work at WWU Scholars Week 2017
Zachery Laycock: 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: Searching for connection between flares, starspots, and photometric flicker with Kepler.
Jonathan Cornet: Comparing flare rates between stars in Kepler.
Riley Clarke: Flare rates from wide binary stars in the Kepler field.
