Recent technological advances enable us to directly image the most massive exoplanets around nearby young stars. Timothy Brandt is studying the hardware and image processing needed to see smaller and fainter planets and, ultimately, another Earth. He also plans to use statistics to constrain these exoplanets’ properties and demographics.
