Eve Lee, a specialist in the formation of planetary systems, joins McGill University’s Department of Physics and the McGill Space Institute as an Assistant Professor and becomes a regular member of iREx. She received her B.Sc. in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Toronto. She then obtained her Ph.D. from UC Berkeley under the supervision of Eugene Chiang in 2017, and spent the two following years as a Sherman Fairchild postdoctoral fellow in theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology.
Eve is interested in the relationship between planets and their stars during the formation of planetary systems from a theoretical point of view. An M.Sc. student, Timothy Hallatt, will join her in September 2019.
The entire iREx team warmly welcomes Eve!
