      In this work, we investigate the presence of stellar companions around hot Jupiter systems using data sets from the Clio and VISAO instruments on the Magellan Telescope. We observed eighteen targets of which eleven have ...
    • Molecular Parentage of Radical Species in the Comae of Comets 

      Lewis, Benjamin Kyle
      Understanding the chemical composition of comets is of great interest to the scientific community. In this work, an integral field unit (IFU) spectrograph is used to detect emissions of C2, C3, CH, CN, and NH2. The azimuthal ...
