Luis Welbanks

NASA Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow studying the atmospheres of planets outside our Solar System.

Previously, PhD Gates Cambridge scholar at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge, and Churchill College.

I am interested in learning what constitutes the atmospheres of planets outside our solar system.

My research focuses on

  • Determining the chemical composition of exoplanet atmospheres
  • Providing plausible abundance estimates of these chemicals species
  • Exploring trends in these compositions to inform our understanding of planet formation
  • Devising next-generation Bayesian frameworks to maximize the information we derive from transmission spectra in a physically plausible way.
