Welcome to ExoLab

We are an organic mixture of students, postdocs, and professors, with the common goal of discovering and characterizing planets around other stars. The ExoLab is a diverse group with a broad range of expertise in theory, observation and experimentation with a common binding ideology. We strive to create a setting that fosters the free exchange of ideas, stimulating discussion toward the understanding of our solar system and ultimately our origins. Planets, unlike many other astronomical objects, inspire a subtle emotional curiosity in mankind, because they alone can be thought of as places, not things. It is our collective vision to uncover the secrets of these far away places. Learn more
