Chris Lam

Graduate Student, University of Florida

Christopher Lam was a CCA pre-doctoral fellow at the Flatiron Institute, working with Megan Bedell and Lily Zhao. While at the CCA, he built a Python library called gaspery, which uses Fisher Information to optimize the scheduling of radial velocity follow-up observations on exoplanet systems. Lam is currently a third-year graduate student at the University of Florida, working with Sarah Ballard on using exoplanet demographics to constrain the dynamical timescales of planetary systems around Sun-like stars. He is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and runs a STEM cohort for first-generation and low-income college students, called the Alliance for the Low-Income & First-Generation Narrative (AL1GN).
