Résumé

Dr. Wang is an expert in finding and characterizing exoplanets using radial velocity (RV) data. She is the PI for the RV×K2 (rvxk2.com) and RV×TESS programs, which are simultaneous RV observational campaigns with Kepler/K2 or TESS to investigate stellar jitter – the bottleneck in finding Earth-like planets. She is the lead for the telluric study team for the NASA-funded probe mission concept study EarthFinder to investigate the RV precision floor set by the contamination due to Earth’s atmosphere which would limit us in finding Earth analogs. Dr. Wang is a member of the Magellan Planet Finder Spectrograph (PFS) team, NASA’s WIYN-NEID spectrograph science team, the MINature RV Array (MINERVA) team, and the Keck Planet Finder (KPF) science team. She is also a co-leader for the Magellan/PFS Southern hemisphere TESS follow-up program (the Magellan TESS Survey, or MTS; 2018-2021).
