- My first PhD student Elisabeth Matthews, now a postdoc at MIT, led our survey for planets around young stars with evidence for multiple belts of circumstellar debris using SPHERE at the VLT. Elisabeth's work uncovered a spectacular image of a nearly edge-on disk around the star HD 129590 (see paper below).
- My next PhD student Aarynn Carter, now a postdoc at UC Santa Cruz, made some of the first predictions about the sensitivity to Saturn and Neptune-analogues at wide orbital separations.
