Louis J. Scuderi’s Homepage


Welcome -


    I’m a graduate student studying astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Institute for Astronomy. My research interests include the population statistics, atmospheres, geology, and structure of extrasolar planets.


    I am currently working with Nader Haghighipour  on searching the Kepler catalog for giant planets orbiting giant stars.

    My undergraduate studies were at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory. My undergraduate research included over 100 nights of observing on the 61” Kuiper Telescope investigating transiting extrasolar planetary systems for evidence of transit timing variations.


    This summer, I'm teaching Astronomy 110, Survey of Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
