Undergraduate Student

My name is Brianna Ryan and I am a freshman at MIT studying physics and nuclear science and engineering.  I am working with Transit Timing Variations and Transit Duration Variations (TTVs and TDVs), which are differences in the transits of planets which can indicate the presence of another planet in resonance.  I am using this to search for low mass terrestrial planets in planetary systems with TESS planets.
