Curriculum Vitae:

Tiffany Kataria

Dr. Kataria's research focuses on the atmospheric structure and dynamics of exoplanetary atmospheres. She utilizes general circulation models to understand the dynamics of super Earths and hot Jupiters over a wide range of parameters, and particularly how these models can be used to directly interpret exoplanetary spectra from ground- and space-based facilities. Currently, she is investigating the role of clouds and hazes in the atmospheres of a sample of hot Jupiter exoplanets that have been observed with HST and Spitzer. She intends on extending her modeling methodology to understanding clouds and hazes on small-mass planets, in anticipation of their detection and characterization with future facilities such as TESS, WFIRST, and JWST.
