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

My name is Lana Joan Tilke. I am a freshman at Connecticut College, and my current plans are to graduate in 2023 with a major in Astrophysics, and minor in Fine Art and Mathematics. Beyond that, I hope to one day get a Ph.D. in Astrophysics. More generally, I hope to always have the opportunity to communicate my love for, knowledge about, and passion for science. My work with Professor de Wit includes photometric data analysis and noise-reduction.
