Dr. Lea Hirsch is a recent graduate of the UC Berkeley astronomy program, having earned her PhD in August 2018. As a graduate student at UC Berkeley, she carried out some of her first astronomical observations at Lick Observatory, so she is thrilled to be returning to the mountain. Lea's research focuses on discovering and characterizing extrasolar planets and their host stars, and she is especially interested in the effects of stellar binary systems on planet formation and evolution. Lea is currently a KIPAC postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University.
