Hosts:

Dr. Natalie Hinkel is a Planetary Astrophysicist at the Southwest Research Institute and a co-investigator for the Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS) research network at Arizona State University. Natalie studies elements in our solar neighborhood (i.e., within 150pc of the Sun,) to learn how element abundances impact the structure and mineralogy of planets.

Natalie - Member - Transit - Ephemeris - Refinement

Natalie is also a member of the Transit Ephemeris Refinement & Monitoring Survey (TERMS) team which analyzes planetary systems with bright stars using new Radial Velocity and photometric measurements. These new techniques vastly improve planetary orbit uncertainties and fundamental host star properties which help to confirm or exclude planetary transits.
