Jason T Wright, Assistant Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics
I am an assistant professor of astronomy and astrophysics at Penn State. I am a member of the Center of Exoplanets for Habitable Worlds and the Penn State Astrobiology Research Center (part of the NASA Astrobiology Institute).
I study stars, their atmospheres, their activity and their planets. I am a member of the California Planet Survey consortium.
I teach at the University Park campus, and have an active research group of students and a postdoc.
I also maintain:
The Exoplanet Orbit Database and Exoplanet Data Explorer at exoplanets.org: a powerful guide to the orbits of known exoplanets. Check it out!
The RVLIN package of IDL routines for efficiently fitting multiple Keplerian curves to radial velocity data.
