Laura Kreidberg

Laura Kreidberg is interested in exoplanets large and small. Her research focuses on atmosphere characterization, with the goal of turning these distant planets into real places - revealing what they're like and how they came to be.

An observer by trade, Kreidberg is an extensive user of space-based telescopes. As director of the APEx Department, she combines observation and modeling of exoplanets to investigate their chemical composition, 3D structure, atmospheric dynamics, and potential habitability. Kreidberg is also a co-I on several instrumentation projects that will enable major advances in ground-based observations of exoplanets, including ELT//METIS and GRAVITY+.
