Research Fields:
Prof. Rogers studies the formation, interior structure, and evolution of exoplanets. The main goals of her research group are to deepen the current understanding of the rich physics governing sub-Neptune-size planet interiors, to discover bulk composition trends in the growing census of known exoplanets, and to connect these composition trends back to distinct planet formation pathways. The pursuit of these aims involves the advancement of numerical models for the interior, atmosphere, evolution, and formation of small exoplanets, as well as the development of statistical frameworks to connect theory and observations.
