Here I am at the American Astronomical Society meeting this week. I presented a poster about the first project I began after arriving at STScI, in collaboration with Marie Ygouf, Laurent Pueyo, Rémi Soummer, and others. I analyzed laboratory data from JPL’s High Contrast Imaging Testbed, where protoypes for the WFIRST coronagraph are being tested. The goal is to learn how well we can subtract residual speckle noise from the coronagraph images, to predict what kinds of planets we can detect.
