Ryan Terrien, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy, has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Grant (AAG) (#2108569) for the project “Collaborative Research: Understanding exoplanets orbiting fully convective stars with the Habitable-zone Planet Finder.” This research, in collaboration with U California-Irvine, Pennsylvania State U, and U Texas at Austin, contributes to the search for planets around nearby low-mass stars, supports outreach and educational activities that engage with the public’s interest in exoplanet discovery, and funds undergraduate and graduate research from underrepresented minority populations.
