David and Ellen Lee Postdoctoral Scholar Research Associate in Astronomy
My name is Jean-Baptiste Ruffio, I joined Caltech as a David & Ellen Lee Prize Postdoctoral Fellow in 2019 to work on high resolution spectroscopy of exoplanets in Dimitri Mawet's group. Before graduating from Stanford with a Ph.D in Physics, I grew up in Brittany, in the northwestern part of France, and studied aerospace engineering at ISAE-Supaero, Toulouse, France. I am interested in the statistical analysis of astronomical data and the development of new instruments for the study of exoplanets with a special emphasis on directly imaged planets.
