Debra Fischer

Debra Fischer works on the detection and characterizations of planets that orbit other stars. She identified a correlation between the chemical composition of host stars and the formation of gas giant planets. She has spent her professional career working on instrumentation and statistical methods for improving radial velocity measurement precision with the goal of detecting planets similar to the Earth.
