UROP - Summer 2020

My name is Tai Zheng, and I’m a rising sophomore at MIT. I’m majoring in aerospace engineering and minoring in computer science. This summer, I’ll be working on a UROP with the Disruptive Planets group to update and improve tepspec, a data reduction pipeline. In addition, I’ll use the modified pipeline to analyze existing observations of the exoplanet WASP-80b.
