Contact Information

As of July 1, 2018, Julien de Wit is an assistant professor in EAPS and an MKI affiliated faculty member.  For additional information, see de Wit’s EAPS landing page.

Julien’s primary interest and expertise lie in the field of data science where Math and Science are brought together to make sense of newly accessible pieces of Reality! Over the past five years, he has developed and applied new analysis techniques to map exoplanet atmospheres, study the radiative and tidal planet-star interactions in eccentric planetary systems, and constrain the atmospheric properties and mass of exoplanets solely from transmission spectroscopy.
