MSc student, McGill Universitydylan_keating

Dylan Keating completed his B.Sc. Physics (Honours) at University of Calgary, with a research focus on space physics. He also attended CaNoRock-3 Sounding Rocket Field Course at Andøya Space Center, Norway in 2011 as one of ten participants from across western Canada. For his Honours thesis, Dylan completed a two-semester project in space physics, studying electrical current structures in diffuse aurora using satellite data from the CHAMP satellite mission.

In the summer of 2011 he worked as a research assistant for the development of a spacecraft instrument at University of Calgary with Johnathan Burchill. The following summer he began a project supervised by David Knudsen and funded by an NSERC USRA to determine how the typical alignment of quiet auroral arcs depends on the interplanetary magnetic field, which ultimately resulted in Journal of Geophysical Research publication.

Dylan received a TEPS fellowship in 2016 for his current M.Sc. research on characterizing hot Jupiter atmospheres through emission spectroscopy, and is supervised by Nicolas Cowan and René Doyon.
