W.J. Brennom

Center for Astrophysics
Physical Science Technician


Brennom is a Physical Science Technician in the division for Solar, Stellar and Planetary Sciences. Their primary research interest is the architecture and evolution of planetary systems and the way these structures and processes interact and shape ensemble demographics of exoplanetary populations. They are presently working on a project which seeks to reanalyze the entire population of hot Jupiters to achieve a single, homogeneously analyzed dataset thereof, integrating the most up-to-date Gaia, TESS, and ground-based photometric data. In the past, they have done work on stellar remnants and post-main sequence stellar populations. They graduated in 2023 from Oberlin College with a B.A. in Physics-Astrophysics and Politics.
