Astronomy & Space Sciences


I am Aiden Zelakiewicz (he/him/his), a first year graduate student starting the Fall of 2023 interested in exoplanets, habitability, and machine learning. I received my B.S. in Astronomy & Astrophysics from THE Ohio State University in the Spring of 2023. There I worked on extinction maps using the United Kingdom InfraRed Telescope (UKIRT) with Dr. B. Scott Gaudi and Dr. Samson A. Johnson. I also co-advise a project alongside Dr. Ji Wang tracking climate change on Earth using Keck.

In my time not scraping seconds off my code runtime, I can be found practicing guitar, taking "not bad" photos, and playing video games. I also enjoy making subpar coffee while claiming it is heaven on Earth.
