My research focuses on transiting brown dwarfs and eclipsing low-mass stars from NASA’s TESS mission. I currently am co-chair of the Transiting Brown Dwarf working group under the TESS Follow-up Program. The aim of the working group is to coordinate follow-up observations of transiting brown dwarfs (from any facility, not just TESS) and eclipsing low-mass binaries with teams from across the world. This will allow for high-quality, efficient characterization the masses and radii of brown dwarfs and low-mass stars, which enables a better understanding of their evolution.
