Elisabeth R. Newton

I'm an astronomer at Harvard interested in nearby planetary systems:
red dwarf stars and the planets that orbit them.

I'm part of the MEarth Project, looking for planets around M dwarfs in the Solar Neighborhood. With my thesis advisor David Charbonneau, I study the properties these small, nearby stars. I love to share astronomy, both online and off. I am a 2015 Harvard Horizons Scholar and was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow.
