Benjamin Montet

Hello! I'm a Carl Sagan Fellow at the University of Chicago. My research is focused on understanding the physical properties of main-sequence stars and their companions. I also am interested in understanding the populations of exoplanets in multiple-planet systems through observations of their dynamical interactions. Previously, I was an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at Caltech, where I was a member of John Johnson's exolab.

When I'm not doing science, you can find me riding my trusty Schwinn World Sport along the Chicago lakefront, experimenting in my kitchen to find the perfect granola recipe, or watching the Cubs win a lot of games, especially this year.
