Hi I'm Logan πŸ‘‹

πŸ˜„ Pronouns: She/Her

I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Arizona & Steward Observatory. I'm interested in exoplanetary systems in multiple star systems and how the other star(s) influence the planetary regime. I primarily explore this with high-contrast adaptive optics ground-based imaging. I also interested in many other things you can explore with this technology that let's us look at faint things next to bright things, including finding new previously-unknown planets using the acceleration of their host stars. I am currently working on modeling detecting and characterizing exoplanets in the light they reflect from their host star using an instrument for the upcoming Giant Magellan Telescope. I love all things stars and planets and am easily distracted with new shiny science!

I'm from Austin Texas, and before becomming an astronomer I served 5 years as a US Navy officer (with nuclear power speciality) and 6 years as a middle school science teacher. I have a labrador named Lani.


  • πŸ”­ I’m currently working on: reflected light exoplanet imaging with GMagAO-X, reducing MagAO-X white dwarf- main sequence star observations
  • 🌱 I’m currently learning: exoplanet atmosphere modeling with PICASO
  • πŸ‘― I’m looking to collaborate on: orbit fitting/orbit dynamical modeling, exoplanet science with high-contrast imaging
  • πŸ’¬ Ask me about: NSF GRFP INTERN program, Warrior Scholar Program, mentorship of student veterans, Astronomy on Tap
