Research Volunteer 

My name is April Cheng, and I am an incoming freshman at MIT currently taking a gap year. I plan on majoring in physics with a minor in astronomy or computer science. This summer and beyond, I’m helping operate the SPECULOOS-North telescope. I am also working on mining TESS data to search for a correlation between perceived stellar activity and exoplanet transit occurrence.
