Courtney Dressing is an assistant professor of astronomy at the University of California, Berkeley. As an observational astronomer she has focused her research on detecting and characterizing planetary systems orbiting nearby stars. She has used telescopes on the ground and in space to search for planets, probe their atmospheres, measure their masses, and constrain their bulk compositions. Courtney is curious about how planets form and evolve with time, the frequency of planetary systems in the Galaxy, and the prospects for detecting life on planets outside of our Solar System.
