by Courtney Dressing | Oct 1, 2013 | Quick Notes |
This is a reminder that today is the last day to apply to write for astrobites. Interested candidates should fill out the online application and include a PDF of a sample astrobite by the application deadline of 11:59PM ET tonight. Please see this astrobite for more details about the application process and email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Thank you to everyone who has already applied to join astrobites! We look forward to reading your applications!
About Courtney DressingI am a fourth-year graduate student in the Astronomy Department at Harvard University. My research interests include exoplanets, habitability, and astrobiology. I received a master's degree in astronomy and astrophysics from Harvard University and a bachelor's degree in astrophysical sciences from Princeton University. At Princeton, I worked with Jill Knapp to study the magnetic activity of M dwarfs with white dwarf companions and with Dave Spiegel to model the habitability of terrestrial exoplanets. For my senior thesis, I worked with Ed Turner, Michael McElwain, and the SEEDS (Strategic Explorations of Exoplanets and Disks with Subaru) collaboration to directly image young Jovian exoplanets using the Subaru telescope. At Harvard, I am working with Dave Charbonneau to study the properties, frequency, and detectability of small planets orbiting small stars.
