Jea Adams is a graduate student in the Department of Astronomy at Harvard. Jea's research involves developing software to examine exoplanets and their atmospheres with both space-based and ground-based telescopes. Jea currently works with Dr. Mercedes Lopez-Morales on the feasibility of detecting oxygen on Earth-like planets with the ELTs (Extremely Large Telescopes), as well as detecting the atmospheres of exoplanets with JWST. Jea also studies methods for optimizing the direct detection of exoplanets.
