Observations of exoplanets, i.e. planets outside our own solar system, can nowadays reveal the 3D nature of those planets. An understanding of their climate can therefore reveal insights about planet formation and general climate dynamics.
Aarons research focuses on modeling the atmosphere of hot gas giant planets with the aim of understanding the connection between the interior and their upper upper atmosphere. In his research Aaron looks for explanations for the question of radius inflation, which is the question of why hot gas giants often have abnormally large radii.
Aaron is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie PhD student at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and at the KULeuven in Belgium.
