NSF Graduate Research Fellow, Astronomy
Moiya McTier is trying to figure out how the structure and motion of the Milky Way galaxy affects populations of exoplanets. Really, she just didn't want to choose between studying galactic dynamics and planet characteristics. She's primarily advised by David Kipping, but also works with Kathryn Johnston and other galaxy-minded folks. You can learn more about her recent work by going to her website.
