Maurice Wilson, PhD Astronomy

I am a postdoctoral astronomy researcher. My breadth of expertise ranges from instrumentation for ground-based observatories to magnetic activity of our Sun to exoplanets orbiting other stars. Astronomers will appreciate the spatial range there: from the Earth to our star to other stars. I have been conducting this research at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) for graduate school and the NCAR High Altitude Observatory (HAO) for my postdoc. My research interests (see CV) include the following topics:

  • Energy budget and extended heating of solar CMEs.
  • Detection and characterization of stellar CMEs and exoplanets.
  • High precision photometry and Doppler spectroscopy pipelines.
