Center for Astrophysics


Jennifer C. Yee is an observational astronomer who studies exoplanet populations. She primarily uses gravitational microlensing to discover planets in orbits analogous to Jupiter's. This technique is uniquely sensitive to planets at these distances from their stars, making it essential for characterizing the exoplanet population at these separations. Jennifer is also interested in characterizing the isolated stellar-mass black hole population. She is working with the Korea Microlensing Telescope Network and the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope.
