Eileen is a 51 Pegasi b Fellow at the Cornell Center for Astrophysics and Planetary Sciences. She uses observational and theoretical techniques to understand the atmospheres of low-mass stars, brown dwarfs and directly-imaged exoplanets. Using atmospheric retrievals, her current work aims to understand cloud properties as well as key chemical processes shaping the formation and evolution of directly-imaged exoplanets and low-gravity brown dwarfs. Her PhD focused on characterizing subdwarf atmospheres using distance-calibrated spectral energy distributions and retrievals.
