Anneliese Rilinger

As a member of Prof. Catherine Espaillat’s research group, I study the disks around young stars and brown dwarfs.  I use irradiated-disk models and ALMA data to measure the masses and radii of brown dwarf protoplanetary disks.  Recently I have also begun using an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) to fit disk models.  These measurements enable us to constrain the formation mechanisms of both the brown dwarfs and their planets as well as probe the evolution of the disks. In 2017 I received a BA from Williams College, where I analyzed spectra of planetary nebulae with Karen Kwitter. Please visit my website to find out more about my research!
