The Physics & Astronomy Department welcomes Assistant Professor Andrew Mann to the faculty. Andrew did his PhD at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where his thesis was on the occurrence and habitability of planets orbiting cool stars. Before joining the UNC faculty, he was a Hubble Fellow at Columbia University, where he led the Zodiacal Exoplanets in Time (ZEIT) survey, which focuses on studying infant and adolescent exoplanets as a tool for learning how planets form and evolve. He now works on a range of topics on the fundamental properties of young stars and exoplanets from the Kepler, K2, and TESS space missions, as well as method for high-impact science with miniaturized satellites (CubeSats and SmallSats).
