Nora Bailey PhD Defense: Planet-Planet Interactions in Exoplanet Systems

Share This Content
I successfully defended my PhD thesis!! The topic was Planet-Planet Interactions in Exoplanet Systems, which basically means I got to play around with a lot of N-body simulations. Pending minor revisions, the thesis will be submitted this month and will be eventually be available publicly. In the meantime, 2 of the 3 main chapters have been published as papers (the third is currently in peer review).

This was from a Zoom recording, and I was not mic'ed up, so I apologize for the audio/video quality, but I wanted to share it anyway! Thanks SO much to everyone who has offered me support and congratulations throughout this entire process. It's been a very very fun 5ish years that I cannot believe has gone by so quickly!
