My name is Fei Dai (戴飞). I'm a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at Caltech. I obtained my PhD in Physics from MIT under the supervision of Prof. Josh Winn .
The discovery and characterization of new, exciting planetary systems with Kepler and K2 and the TESS mission is the focus of my research. Using both novel data analysis techniques and numerical simulations, I want to understand the composition, orbital architecture and atmospheric loss of planets which in turn tell us about their formation, evolution and habitability.
