Eric Agol

is a professor at University of Washington, working on transiting planet detection and characterization.

Razvan Caracas

is a senior researcher at CNRS in ENS Lyon working on planetary materials at extreme conditions. He uses ab initio techniques based on density-functional theory to understand the behavior of minerals in a variety of environments, ranging from giant impacts to deep Earth, from super-Earths to ice giants. .

Rebekah (Bekki) Dawson

is a Miller postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley working on the other type of "planetary dynamics" (celestial mechanics), debris disks, the evolution of exoplanetary systems and the solar system, planet formation, and extracting orbital properties of planets from time series.

Dan Fabrycky

is a professor at University of Chicago working on multi-exoplanet systems, from the interpretation of data of individual systems, to how the statistics of those systems constrain planet formation and evolution

Eric Ford

is a professor at Penn State Univ., working on the formation, evolution, and gravitational interactions among planets.

Eric Gaidos

spends much of his time looking for life in all the right places. Or rather, what we think are "all the right places", i.e. luke-warm, tectonically-active, rocky Earth-size planets with comparatively thin atmospheres orbiting long-lived stars. Eric is based at the Cosmic Reference Point for habitability (Hawai'i) but is often on an orbit where he experiences climatic extremes. For publications see:

Greg Huber

Greg Huber is a biophysicist at the KITP and a Deputy Director. He also manages the Evoplanets15 program.

Louise Kellogg

is a professor of Geophysics at UC Davis and Director of the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics, working on computer modeling of dynamical processes in the solid Earth including mantle convection and its effects on geologic processes such as earthquakes and landscape change.

Scott King

is a professor at Virginia Tech, working on the internal dynamics of Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars using surface observations including gravity, topography, heat flow and volcanism coupled with numerical models to understand the large-scale processes within these bodies.

Geoff Marcy

is a professor at UC Berkeley, working on occurrence, masses, densities, and orbits of small exoplanets. He also works on SETI.

Bill McDonough

is a professor at Univ of Maryland, geochemist, working on the composition of the Earth, Moon and terrestrial planets.

Burkard Militzer

is a professor at UC Berkeley, working on computer simulation in condensed matter physics using Quantum Monte Carlo methods. He computes properties of hydrogen helium mixtures at high pressure and properties of materials at high pressure that compose rocky planets.

Sean Raymond

is an astronomer at the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Bordeaux in France. He studies the formation and orbital evolution of planets, both in the Solar System and in extra-solar planetary systems.

Leslie Rogers

is a Hubble Fellow at the California Institute of Technology, working on the interior structure, formation, and evolution of Super-Earth and Sub-Neptune exoplanets.

Dimitri Veras

is a postdoc at the University of Warwick who studies the end state of planetary systems, and how they inform us about planetary formation, evolution and bulk chemical compositions.

Lauren Weiss

is the 4th year Ken & Gloria Levy graduate student UC Berkeley. With Geoff Marcy, she determines exoplanet masses, densities, and empirical mass-radius relations. She also studies the dynamics of closely packed multi-planet systems.

Diana Dragomir

is a postdoctoral fellow at UCSB and LCOGT. She searches for, finds and characterizes small exoplanets and their atmospheres. She also uses the LCOGT network in novel ways to improve ground-based exoplanet observations.
