About Jacob Bean's Work

By studying the atmospheres of planets beyond our solar system, also known as an “exoplanets,” my goal is to gain a deeper understanding of planetary formation, physics, chemistry and ultimately, habitability. Using ground and space-based telescopes, my research group is interested in detecting and characterizing these worlds and eventually identifying other Earth-like planets.
