Professor Eve Lee’s research aims to uncover the origin of diversity in planetary systems: to understand what we have observed and to predict what we may discover through future missions. She is a theorist motivated by observational puzzles with analytic, semi-analytic, and numerical tools in her arsenal. Specific topics of interest include (but not limited to) the origin of planetary atmospheres, the orbital architecture of planetary systems, star-disk-planet interaction, and the dynamics of debris disks.
Before coming to McGill, Professor Eve Lee was a Sherman Fairchild Postdoctoral Scholar in Theoretical Physics at Caltech. She received her PhD at UC Berkeley under the supervision of Eugene Chiang, and obtained Hon BSc in Astronomy and Physics at the University of Toronto.
