discovering and studying new worlds to consolidate our understanding of planets and habitats.
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.
