Dr. Tyler Ryburn

Percival Lowell Postdoctoral Fellow

Stellar Astronomy / Exoplanets

PhD Arizona State University, 2022

Dr. Ryburn joined Lowell Observatory as a postdoctoral researcher in 2022. Her primary research interests are in characterizing the early evolution of low-mass stars (stars smaller than our Sun), interpreting what this means in our understanding of their natures, and determining how this impacts the planets orbiting them.

Dr. Ryburn uses both ground- and space-based instruments primarily in the UV, optical, and infrared to study stars and exoplanets. She is currently using the 4.3-m Lowell Discovery Telescope to understand how different layers of stellar atmospheres evolve in time.
