Nhat Quang Hoang Tran

Pre-doctoral Student, University of Texas at Austin
Research Analyst, CCA (2021-2022), Flatiron Institute

Nhat Quang Hoang Tran’s primary research is the study of young planets orbiting young stars, particularly using the precision radial velocity measurements in the near infrared. At the CCA, Quang developed a framework to model the signature of stellar activity in time series data using Gaussian processes. This framework will eventually be applied to real data to boost the significance detection of young planets, which is often obscured by stellar activity. Combining this framework and data from primary research, Quang hopes to reveal the presence of giant planets around more active stars and ultimately constrain their evolutionary paths and timescales.

Quang is currently a doctoral student at the University of Texas at Austin.
