Rauscher obtained her Ph.D. from Columbia and is an associate professor of astronomy at the University of Michigan. She is an expert in three-dimensional numerical simulations of exoplanet atmospheres. She also identified novel techniques for measuring complex atmospheric properties: ‘eclipse mapping’ to create images of exoplanet daysides and using Doppler shifts in high-resolution spectra to constrain planets’ wind speeds and rotation rates. She is a Cottrell Scholar and a Simons Fellow in Theoretical Physics.
