Richey-Yowell

Ph.D. Candidate at Arizona State University

     I am a third-year Astrophysics Ph.D. candidate working with Dr. Evgenya Shkolnik. My current work relates to star-planet interactions, primarily the space-weather environments around stars and how that impacts exo-planetary atmospheres. I am similarly interested in aurorae on brown dwarfs and exoplanets as indicators of the magnetic field strengths and atmospheric properties of those bodies.

     I am also part of a team looking to determine astero-seismic targets for the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission. Previously, I focused on close binary star systems, mostly W UMa-types, and explored the evolutionary track of these types of pairs. 

     When I am not working, I can be found watching hockey (go, Penguins!), practicing one of my many instruments, or camping under the stars.
