January 25, 2019 Kristina Punzi ’18 (astrophysical sciences and technology) Faculty: Joel Kastner

Kristina Punzi ’18 (astrophysical sciences and technology) led an X-ray and optical study of the young star RZ Piscium, which suggests that its unusual brightness variations may be due to the orbiting debris from a recently destroyed planet. Faculty adviser was Professor Joel Kastner. http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.3847/1538-3881/aa9524/meta
