I am a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at Penn State, and a member of the Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds.

I study stars, their atmospheres, their activity and their planets, and also work on SETI. I am Project Scientist for NEID, a PI of NExSS, a co-PI of MINERVA, and a member of the Habitable Zone Planet Finder team.

I teach at the University Park campus, and have an active research group of students and postdocs.

You can learn more about my research on my blog and on my research page and follow me on Twitter @Astro_Wright.
