Overview

Anjali Piette is an astronomer who focuses on the study of exoplanet atmospheres—from temperate low-mass planets to highly-irradiated gas giants and isolated brown dwarfs. She is especially interested in what the emission spectra of these atmospheres can tell us about their temperature profiles, energy transport, potential surface/interior properties and atmospheric chemistry/clouds. 

Piette will be joining campus in October where she will work with Peter Gao and Johanna Teske to investigate sub-Neptune exoplanets, especially their atmosphere-surface interactions.
