Garreth Ruane, PhD

I am an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at Caltech. My research interests include exoplanets, circumstellar disks, and high-contrast imaging techniques. My goal is to enable the detection of molecules in the atmospheres of planets orbiting nearby stars with next-generation ground- and space-based observatories.
