Exoplanets: The How, What & Why of Planets Around Other Stars

In the last decade, the commissioning of new observatories (both on Earth and in space) and the development of new techniques for analyzing large datasets (including the application of deep learning) have allowed dramatic advancements in our understanding of extrasolar planets. This talk will explore how exoplanets are formed, what techniques allow their discovery, and why they have been fundamental to understanding our place in the Universe.

Speaker: Dr. Megan Ansdell, Postdoctoral Fellow, Center for Integrative Planetary Sciences, UC Berkeley
