The Rotunda at Lowell Observatory

Evgenya Shkolnik, Astronomer

Evgenya arrived at Lowell in September 2011 after a long astronomical route she calls "Follow the Telescopes" – from Canada, to Hawaii, to Washington, D.C., to Flagstaff. She spends her time working on the characterization of exoplanets and the search for young, low-mass stars.

The magnetic and tidal interactions between planets and their host stars tells us about the planet's (as well as the star's) fundamental properties. And the search for young stars is critical to finding young and self-luminous planets that may be orbiting them, and to the study of star and planet formation.
