About Johanna
  • Johanna’s research involves finding and characterizing planets around other stars using ground- and space-based spectroscopic instruments. Recently she has been focused on better understanding the origins of super-Earth and sub-Neptune planets by studying their interior and atmospheric compositions. She is also interested in how the compositions of host stars are (or are not) related to their orbiting planets, and observational techniques to push the limits of radial velocity instruments (to detect smaller planets).
  • Johanna strives to make science more inclusive and supportive of a diverse community through actions within her home institution, in collaborations, and through mentoring.
  • In her spare time, she likes running, reading, and Peloton-ing.
