UROP - Summer 2020

My name is Claire McLellan-Cassivi, and I'm a freshman in aerospace engineering at MIT.  I am currently planning on minoring in astronomy and Russian.  Currently, I am part of the Disruptive Planets group and working on a UROP with the SPECULOOS North Observatory's Artemis telescope studying exoplanet transits.  I am also working with the MIT Wallace Astrophysical Observatory, remotely observing exoplanet candidate transits with the TESS Follow-Up program, as well as working on other projects at the observatory.
